Analyse et mesure des insécurités langagières chez des adultes en situation d’insertion

Abstract : A number of studies have dealt with issues of failure at school but the question of linguistic insecurity among adults - native speaker adults - has however been little analyzed. Linguistic insecurity is defined here as the difficulty a speaker has in efficiently managing the verbal interactions he or she participates in from a linguistic, interactional, pragmatic and social point of view. Beyond political and ideological debates, the scientific question today is to know if the level of command of the language can compensate for linguistic insecurity and enables a speaker to communicate in an efficient and satisfactory manner with others, whatever the elements of the communicative situation. The objective of this thesis is to identify, analyze and measure the linguistic problems native French-speaking job-seekers encounter when they are engaged in an interaction with a vocational advisor. The aim is to show that, apart from lexical and syntactical problems, difficulties related to the management of the interaction may appear and interfere with the course of the exchanges. This problem seems to be linked to the level of qualification of the job-seeker and is mainly apparent in the collaborative structure of the interaction which requires ongoing conversational adjustments and negotiations.
