Le vocabulaire du pays de Salm : documents d'archives et survivances orales

Abstract : The Salm country (on the boundary of the departments of the Vosges and the Bas-Rhin), united to France in 1793, is characterized by a dialect which is mainly roman (northern old French) even if this region was governed, until its annexing, by German princes. This patois can better be understood thanks to a dialectal study bades on a comparative analysis of documents of archives (public and private) and of oral testimonies supplied by old people from the Salm country. added to the dialectal study there is an ethnologic study which describes the daily life of the Salm country's inhabitants in ancient and more recent times and broaches the following themes : time, weather and nature; agriculture ; breeding; domestic life; the human being; language; spiritual life. This double study thus allows to follow, in a perspective which is as much diachronic as synchronic, the evolution of dialectal terms and to assess them in their context of conception and use. Furthermore, it allows to establish that the patois of the Salm country, a geographical and (before 1793) historical entity, is still alive and has a grammar worthy of the name
