Le silence dans le récit oral

Abstract : In the written story, a text can play with silences to involve the reader in the construction of meaning. Silence can be an element that constitutes a lack or an absence. This concept, used by narratologists encompasses several terms (white, absence, opacity, hole, fault, ellipse, etc.) does not cover the same reality. In oral discourse, there are also silences. How are they constructed? What are the criteria for asserting that there is "silence" in the oral narrative? Is silence in oral discourse explicitly announced by the narrator or is it perceived as such by the reader (listener or viewer). Is this an intentional silence or a simple omission?
