    “Gelan”. Laughing, making laugh, theorizing laughter

    Comicality and playfulness between words, concepts, and practices in ancient texts

    The “funny”, “humorous”, “ironic”, and “playful” dimensions of ancient works have often been the focus of modern scholarship and the subject of several published volumes and articles. Nevertheless, there have been no comprehensive studies that explore both the terms themselves and how to make these useful for the evaluation of ancient literature and art in a way that examines their heuristic value, with the goal of arriving at more objective interpretations. Since defining the comic and the playful remains a fundamental problem, conceptual tools are still needed so as to better identify and appreciate content of this kind in ancient works. The aim of this thematic dossier of Methodos is to refine the tools and methods that would permit such analyses.

    Proper names and the lexicon

    Lexis – Journal in English Lexicology

    This special issue of Lexis invites us to look at proper names, including units like John, Facebook (proper nouns) but also (the) United States, (the) Chancellor of the Exchequer (proper or denominative expressions). From a comparative perspective, we could also extend the analysis to peripheral forms close to proper names, such as nicknames and antonomasia of common nouns, which serve to name a referent in an alternative way (Lilibeth for Elizabeth, t/The Bard for William Shakespeare) in French or in English.

    Learning situations and language inequalities

    Langues et usages journal, no.6

    Le numéro 6 de la revue Langues et usages s'intéresse aux situations d'apprentissage et aux inégalités langagières. Ce numéro de Langues et usages vise ainsi à renouveler et prolonger la réflexion sur ce que peut recouvrir et représenter aujourd’hui la formule langue de scolarisation, dans le monde scolaire, dans le premier comme dans le second degré, et plus largement sur les interactions langagières en contexte scolaire ou universitaire, dans une acception large qui peut être saisie à partir de ce qu’en disent les acteurs ou les usagers (enseignants, apprenants, formateurs, partenaires institutionnels, parents etc.), mais aussi dans les pratiques, les productions diverses des uns et des autres, et qui sont susceptibles de traduire des conceptions diverses du rôle de la langue et de ses usages dans les apprentissages et dans la formation à l’université, dans différents contextes.
