Dans cette contribution, nous proposons une réflexion critique sur la notion de subjectivité qui constitue un « beau cas », voire un cas d’école, pour observer la manière dont la pensée linguistique opère le réglage théorique entre l’analyse de faits de grammaire et l’étude de leurs textualisations.

The aim of this lecture was to investigate the relation between scribal variation and language change in pre-Demotic Egyptian, focusing more specifically on “The best case scenario in the worst cultural environment”, i.e. the text community of Deir el-Medineh during the 20th Dynasty. The talk was methodologically oriented and several case-studies (related to the diaphasic and diachronic dimensions of variation) were presented in order to illustrate some principles and to suggest new ways of investigation in the description of Ancient Egyptian variation. Additionally, the possibility of a scribal network analysis of the written material found in Deir el-Medineh has been discussed. [less ▲]

Based on several examples, it is suggested that the best reading for the construction "iw bn sDm.f" (i.e. the negation of the subjunctive in a circumstantial) is undoubtedly "it is impossible for him to hear". In the case of the oath sworn by the doorkeeper Khaemwaset in the “Turin Strike Papyrus” (pTurin 1880, vs 2,8-19) that was written down by Amennakhte, this reading is likely to put some light on the events which took place in Deir el-Medina during the last years of Ramesses 3.

In this talk, we argue for a pragmatic basis for semantic change of the type observed in grammaticalization, viz., the conventionalization of conversational inferences (see, e.g., Bybee et al. 1994, Traugott & Dasher 2002, Ariel 2008) or more generally, the diachronic transfer of meaning from context to code (Givón 2005). Specifically, we claim that addressees (listeners/readers as active discourse participants) make inferences and in turn, as speakers/writers, propagate them, leading to their generalization. A crucial distinction must be made between SUBJECT-ORIENTED and SPEAKER-ORIENTED inferences, implicitly argued for in Bybee et al. (1994) and clearly downplayed in contemporary discussions such as Traugott & Dasher (2002). In SUBJECT-ORIENTED inferences, addressees interpret the utterance as a speaker’s report about the subject’s state of mind, while in the SPEAKER-ORIENTED ones, addressees interpret the utterance as reporting on the state of mind of the speaker. Speaker-oriented inferences are those that lead to the relaxing of selectional restrictions on subjects observed in a number of grammaticalization paths (illustration with allative future in the talk). Speaker-oriented inferences also lead to a rise in context-expansion and text frequency of constructions, which in turn catalyze many of the phenomena associated with grammaticalization. [less ▲]

Cette thèse constitue la première étude générale de la modalité en néo-égyptien. Le chapitre introductif (p. 5-43) est consacré [1] à la définition de ce premier état de langue de l’égyptien de la seconde phase ; cette définition a permis la délimitation d’un corpus servant d’assise empirique à l’étude (la répartition du corpus en fonction de critères chronologiques et géographiques, de la nature du support et des "Textsorten" a donné la possibilité de pondérer et d’objectiver les analyses proposées pour chaque expression de la modalité). Ensuite, [2] un cadre théorique général pour l’étude de la langue est discuté. Le corps du travail se divise en trois parties consacrées respectivement : [1] à une définition générale de la notion de modalité (cela afin de déterminer les media expressifs qui relèvent de son étude en néo-égyptien) ainsi qu’à l’établissement d’un modèle sémantique à la fois économique, cohérent et correspondant aux données typologiques (p. 44-115) ; [2] à l’étude des modalités radicales (i.e. les modalités déontiques et bouliques en envisageant les relations qu’elles entretiennent avec le domaine axiologique ; p. 116-341) ; [3] à l’examen des modalités assertives (p. 342-446) : [a] analyse des formes de complémentation, en ce compris les liens entre intégration syntaxique, variation de l’assertivité et degré de manipulation, [b] étude de l’impact des auxiliaires d’énonciation sur le degré d’assertivité d’une proposition, [c] critique des théories existantes concernant les moyens expressifs du discours indirect en néo-égyptien. Les conclusions (p. 447-466) sont accompagnées de propositions prospectives devant permettre [1] de rendre le modèle défendu applicable à l’étude des complexes conditionnels, [2] d’intégrer la dimension énonciative dans l’analyse des relations interpersonnelles, [3] de proposer une approche globale des media expressifs de la causalité et de la finalité.
