La question comme outil de construction de l’intercompréhension en réunion de travail

Abstract : This thesis aims at analyzing how questions work during work meetings, while exploring how they are linked to cross-comprehension. Rooted in the sociolinguistics of verbal interactions framework, this study required to create an eclectic theoretical framework made up of different disciplinary fields. This tailor-made framework allowed for different but complementary approaches to shed light on this phenomenon taking place in a complex context and subjected to multiple challenges. Thus, we seek to understand what role questions play in the speakers’ cross-comprehension process whilst analyzing their sociolinguistic, interactional and pragmatic features in work situations. The constitution and analysis of a 15 hours and 40 minutes corpus accounting for approximately 229,000 transcribed words allowed us to identify several ways questions work in the making of cross-comprehension. We looked at three phenomenon that are rarely described in scientific literature on questions: semi-assertions, suspensive questions and hybrid questions.
