La structuration lexicale chez les locuteurs réunionnais : spécificités et normes catégorielles

Abstract : This article deals with the lexical structuring of approximately 150 speakers from Reunion Island. The purpose is to determine whether the lexicon of these speakers is organized into semantic categories including a prototype, and to find out if the latter is specific to Reunion Island. Our first results show that the lexicon of these Reunion Island speakers, like the one of the metropolitan France speakers, seems to structure itself into categories, which tends to indicate that the lexical component is based on a cognitive underlying structure. Categoryspecific standards have been identified, among which a majority of categories with prototypes similar to the categories used in metropolitan France. They form themselves relatively early and remain relatively stable through time. Some categories are also closely related to the cultural context, with a prototype that is specific to Reunion Island.
