Représentations et constructions socio-discursives de Latinidad dans la presse états-unienne : étude sociolinguistique des structures linguistiques et des phénomènes de contacts anglais-espagnol

Abstract : A large number of Latinos are currently living in the United States for diverse historical reasons. Their presence and participation in the American context are revealed in a variety of ways and are considered worthy of documentation. In this research, we are interested in the discursive construction of this community through language. Using an american press corpus from 1992 to 2004, we study the bilingual phenomena or transcodic markers and linguistic structures which build the sociodiscursive representations of Latinidad. In the study of the sociodiscursive representations of Latinidad, we pick out the bilingual phenomena and linguistic structures which nuance the Latinidad discourse at sentence level. On the one hand, we study, the linguistic characteristics and the communicative functions of Spanish transcodic markers that are used in the monolingual American press. On the other hand, by using the theory of systemic functional grammar and its transitivity system, we observe the sociodiscursive representations present in the phenomena and linguistic elements that make up the sentence. Thanks to the ideational metafunction of language people can represent experiences and impressions of both their outside and inner world. Their impressions take shape through the linguistic elements of the sentence. This approach has enabled us to identify the tendency to divest the process of the verb of its essential characteristics. We find a desire to give concrete expression to abstract processes and to abstract concrete processes.
