Langues, cultures et savoirs universitaires africains dans le contexte numérique: Quels outils pour la linguistique africaine dans la description et l’analyse des langues africaines?

Abstract : Since independence, the majority of African countries have adopted the political and legal structures of metropolitan countries and have built their education systems on the European or American model with concepts and tools that exist only in European languages. Today, in the context of globalization and digital technology, knowledge is shared by the entire research community. New tools to improve research and produce better results are being put in place in the social and human sciences. In this context, African linguistics participates in scientific progress and in world culture through its research on African languages. New technologies have become essential instruments in all research. They constitute an obligatory passage for research on African languages. All software and programs are generally designed by European or American researchers for Western languages. How can African research then progress on African languages ​​without its own tools? How to develop the description and analysis of African languages ​​with digital tools? How can we share the scientific knowledge conveyed by African languages ​​with the entire scientific community? Since most of the countries have an essentially oral culture, what tools to better safeguard the languages, cultures and knowledge specific to Africa? The objectives of this communication are: Digital technology as an essential tool for research in African linguistics; the need to find suitable software and programs for research and the needs of African populations; the sharing of research and knowledge by and with African languages.
