    Presence and impact of the ecological vocabulary in political rhetorics : analysys of manifestoes (1965-1995)


  • Abstract

    This thesis analyses the way the political rhetoric uses the ecological vocabulary, as well as the consequences this has on the ecologist parties themselves. The first part is delmicated to a study of the lexis, with such generic words as "green", "ecology", "environnement", and it is based upon j. Picoche's "semantique puissancielle". Itis completed by a list of key-words later examined in the three following surveys, all of which being inspired by the theory of praxematical the first corpus is composed of political manifestoes all delivered during presidential campaigns from 1965 - 1995. The constant and penetrating use of ecological words is analysed in a dacronic perspective. The second corpus deals with the 1992 local election in seinemaritime and includes some detailed and contrasted analyses. The last one gathers leaflets that were handed out by ecological candidates running for the 1993 general elections in seine-maritime (who acconted for 30 % of the total number of candidates) and it mainly deals with phenomenons of interferences and mismisapprooriations.

  • Abstract

    Cette these examine la facon dont les mots de l'ecologie sont utilises par le discours politique des professions de foi et les consequences de cette utilisation pour les partis ecologistes eux-memes. La premiere partie presente une etude lexicologique des mots generiques : "vert". "environnement", "ecologie", et met en oeuvre la semantique puissancielle dej. Picoche. Une enquete complete ensuite la liste de mots temoins qui seront suivis dans dans les trois etudes de corpus suivantes, qui se reclament du cadre theorique de la praxematique. Le 1er corpus rassemble les professions de foi des elections presidentielles entre 1965 et 1995 et permet de rendre compte d'un point de vue diachronique de la penetration comme de la constance de l'emploi des mots de l'ecologie. Le second corpus concerne l'election regionale de 1992 en seine-martime et permet des analyses contrastives detaillees. Le dernier corpus reunit les circulaires des candidats ecologistes a l'elect ion legislative de 1993 en seine-maritime (soit 30% du total) et traite essentiellement de phenomenes de parasitage.
