L'écrit occasionnel : cohérence pragmatique et cohérence textuelle : étude d'un corpus épistolaire

Abstract : In western societies, writing imposes its order not only on knowledge, memory and social institutions, but also on the relationships between such fields and the individual. The occasional writer is someone who knows the basic techniques for using the written code, but who only enters into the dense network formed by written texts when obliged to do so by a specific set of circumstances. An exchange of correspondence, which is one particular form of written interaction with its own particular characteristics, provides a very interesting angle from which the observer can study the texts produced by occasional writers. Such writers construct a text-object, the objectification of a discursive and pragmatic process consisting of a triggering mechanism, which justifies the existence of the letter, and a discourse aim which justifies the communicative act. The writer reconstructs reality within the framework of the text, and it is precisely this textual construal of reality, rather than any fundamental inability to understand order as such, which gives rise to problems of coherence.
