Réflexions épistémologiques sur de nouveaux apports méthodologiques et empiriques à l’étude géolinguistique des français d’Amérique

Abstract : After a brief historical overview of Canadian French geolinguistic studies, we will offer a detailed presentation of a new on-line survey technique (crowdsourcing) that allows us to shed new light on dialectal differentiation in Canadian French, considered from the point of view of the speakers’ self-representations. We will be following this up with an epistemological questioning focused on the limits of this approach (elicited vs. spontaneous data ; production vs. auto-representation data ; observer’s paradox ; diasituational variation ; syntagmatic issues ; distinc- tion between signification and designation), and then go on with a presentation of the cartographic treatment of the data. The core of the talk will be dedicated to a series of maps and graphs, elaborated on the basis of our on-line inquiries, that exemplify various prototypical areal distributions (complementary areas, local types, peripheral areas and age effect).
