Négociation des ressources langagières dans les échanges conversationnels népali-anglais - Translingualité et identification en contexte urbain népalophone

Abstract : The present study focused on language contact phenomena observed from the viewpoint of multilingual speakers in an urban context, as well as on the connection between linguistic resources and identity - making processes. The proposed case study is the Nepali-speaking environment comprised of the urban centers of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. The chosen context of study is that of contemporary Nepales e society, in particular the spoken interactions of some categories of speakers deemed more likely to adopt mixed language practices involving the integration of English in their daily conversations in Nepali, which is the official language of Nepal and the most widely used in intercommunity contacts. From a corpus of spoken data recorded in a diversity of environments, extracts from media programs, as well as survey questionnaires and semi-structured interviews, we undertake to analyze the dynamics of meaning-making in these mixed language practices to increase our understanding of complex identity- making patterns. Shaped as a sociolinguistic register based on stylistic conventions and specific discursive strategies, such language practices vigorously resist a classification in terms of code switching or code mixing. The study focuses chiefly on the analysis of the meshing potential of heterogeneous linguistic resources from an interpretive approach inspired by a methodological and theoretical apparatus that is both well-experienced (interactional sociolinguistics, ethnography of speech, praxematics) and more recent (sociolinguistics of globalization, urban sociolinguistics, translinguistic approaches), the major concern of which is to confront effective practices, declared practices and representations of translingual behavior.
