Les choix lexicaux des élèves révélateurs d’un déjà-là

Abstract : Our research focuses on the roots of any verbal production in the “already-there”: productions heard, read, written (or not) by the writer himself. This article is based on data collected through an experiment of recall written from a heard story by young students. They benefit from a double influence of the “already-there”: the influence of heard source and the influence of first written text. The analysis of corpus presented in this article, focused on the observation of lexical choices, corroborates the influence of the “already-there”: traces of literary reminiscences, re-use of linguistic materials, choices of synonyms and individual cultural knowledge. The discussions about lexical explanations in the classes have implications for understanding the mental pathway of students and their semantic networks, for understanding lexical errors. The interactivity of collective lexical explanations is an attractive didactic aim, just as well for changing the teacher’s perceptions about some lexical choices as for encouraging an oral lexical activity useful for the writing and the reading.
