Représentations et schémas sociolinguistiques en langue étrangère : l'exemple d'apprenants sinophones et anglophones du FLE

Abstract : One of the particularities of the process of sociolinguistic acquisition in a foreign language concerns the difficulty of learners to integrate the sociolinguistic norms of the target language. If in their native culture, the learners build a network of associations between linguistic knowledge and social knowledge, in a foreign language, they must develop this capacity. The main objectives of this work are to understand how learners develop schemas that associate sociolinguistic variants with social parameters and how they associate socio-indexical values to varieties. We carried out two studies with FLE learners studying in France. For the first study, we did a repetition task with 24 English-speaking students and 42 Chinese-speaking students. The second study, a subjective reaction test, was conducted among 40 English-speaking students, 41 Chinese-speaking students, and 88 native French-speaking students. Our analysis highlights the tendency of learners to make homogeneous statements that are not homogeneous at the sociolinguistic level. This result suggests that learners construct sociolinguistic schemas of standard and non-standard varieties in a foreign language. We have also found that learners are sensitive to sociolinguistic variations in the target language. Indeed, they judged standard and non-standard French statements differently. Our analysis also reveals differences in the construction of sociolinguistic schemas and in the judgments of varieties between the two nationalities of our study.
