Les xénismes dans les récits de voyageurs français en Perse au XIXe siècle

Abstract : This is a study of alien words used by French travelers in Persia in the 19th century. There are two volumes. Volume 1 : the introduction compares loan words and alien words and attempts to give the right definition of what an alien word is. The first part gives a survey of how much persian the French travelers knew, how they learnt it and where. The second part studies the transfer of a persian work into an alien word (various transcription procedures are being analyzed). In the third part, the author deals with three different problems : 1) How can a writer emphasize an alien word in a French sentence ? 2) How can an alien word fit into a French structure ? 3) Which metalinguistic procedures are used to make a bilingual sentence significant ? In the fourth part, the author is concerned with lisibility factors of a bilingual text and gives remarks on style and lexicology. Volume 2 : this is a glossary of 707 Persian alien words used in French travelers' books. Each word is presented with its Persian spelling and its transcription. It is followed by definitions borrowed from 19th and 20th century dictionaries as well as numerous quotations from 19th century travelers.
