Les variations linguistiques intergénérationnelles des parlers comme source de problèmes d’intercompréhension

Abstract : From birth, the child is confronted to different varieties of the same language that he has to learn and the factors that determine their use. From his first words, the child produces various lexical forms referring to the same concept as said by (Chambers, 1995: 20): "childhood is the epoch of vernacular acquisition. This is the phase in which the mastery of phonology and syntax develops by integrating regional characteristics and social class markers". Therefore, the awakening to languages is not the study of a p articular language. It is the active discovery, by means of activities that put the child in contact with oral and written corpuses in different languages, the broadest diversity of the languages of the world, linguistic varieties of any status p resent in the environment, Languages of families...and so on. Beyond differences in the level of mastery of "social registries" in relation to adults, children become aware from an early age that language is not only about communicating, and do not always use the "same words" with everyone. Sensitivity to social and situational factors is therefore precocious. This is a topic in the area of developmental sociolinguistics that attempts to document the processes of language acquisition in context (Gumperz, 1989). This is exactly what this contribution tries to exp lain by observing the same process in the Arab sphere (Lachkar, 2013).
