Ce mercredi 2 juin de 10H à 11H, Lacina SILUE (doctorant Llacan – projet ERC SpeechReporting), nous présentera « The influence of the Dyula quotative marker ko on the grammar of reported speech in IvorianFrench: Cases of mismatch between form and function« .
Résumé : Ivorian French is well known to be highly influenced and colored by ivorian local languages in that it integrates some of their items and grmmatical constructions either from borrowings, or loans. This feature makes some grammatical constructions of this variant of French sound exotic to the speakers of Standard French since the only way to grasp them would be to cast an eye on the grammar of those local languages. Among those local languages, Dyula, the oldest lingua franca of Côte d’Ivoire (Boutin2014) turns out to play an important role in understanding some grammatical phenomena of Ivorian French. This is particularly the case for the grammar of reported speech on which the Dyula particle ko has an impact.
This presentation seeks to show the influence of the Dyula particle ko on the grammar of reported speech in Ivorian French.
