Forum de recherche de l'ILOB - Nathalie Auger

Résumé :

Au cours des 10 dernières années, un corpus de recherche qualitative en France et en Europe récolté dans les classes de français a permis d’établir des liens entre les langues et les cultures présentes dans la salle de classe afin de soutenir l'apprentissage des langues (DVD "comparons nos langues", récompensé par le label européen de l'innovation dans l'enseignement de la langue). Ces activités ont également permis un travail sur les représentations des langues à l'école et a consolidé la sécurité linguistique des élèves.

Previous work in Semitic word recognitin in (e.g., Boudelaa and Marslen--Wilson 2021, 2004, et seq. for Arabic, Frost et al. 1997, 2000 for Hebrew, and Twist 2006 for Maltese) addressed the psycholinguistic reality of the consonantal root using visual masked priming to explire the extent to which lexical access involves morphological decomposition into roots and patterns.
