Étude historique et étymologique de la terminologie linguistique française

Abstract : A research on the etymology and history of linguistics terminology will provide an important gain in historical and etymological knowledge. This gain concerning the description of particular scientific terms has broader implications: improved knowledge on the coining process of the linguistics vocabulary, as well as indications about the possible consequences that a massive progress of the description of an important portion of the internationalisms could have on the etymological sub-discipline itself. This thesis also contributes to a methodological progress in a weak area of the etymological science, a progress all the more significant as it is crucial to our understanding of the current functioning of lexical creation in French. An outstanding characteristic of this thesis is that it lays at the intersection of several fields, covering lexicology (and lexicography, since it encompasses a section devoted to lexicographical entries), terminology (since the subject of these articles is linguistic terms) and etymology. Furthermore, the philological aspect of this research is important because the work on the beginning of the existence of terms led us to analyze various types of texts belonging to different periods. We then exploit the new data offered by the lexicographical entries in order to provide a synthetic view of the constitution of the French linguistics terminology.
