  • Disfluences, @ Cabinet de curiosités des langues de France, Orléans, 2015

Unlike written language, our spoken language is sprinkled with brief hesitations and false starts, repetitions, long-drawn-out syllables and fillers that interrupt the fluidity of speech. These discontinuities are called “disfluencies” or “disfluences” in French. Their function is to make listeners wait while the speaker elaborates his or her discourse, they reflect emotion, stress, as well as the speaker’s sociological profile. . . . The video Disfluences, based on an interview with Olivier Baude from the research group Laboratoire Ligérien de Linguistique, is an opportunity to focus on these largely unexplored and meaningful facets of spoken language.

Video duration : 8’30’’
