40 ans de linguistique textuelle et didactisation du français langue étrangère

Translated title of the contribution: 40 years of Textlinguistics and Its Didactic Application in Teaching French as a Foreign Language

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The article presents different models from the 40 years history of Scandinavian text linguistics and its didactic application for teaching French as a foreign language, ending with combining the structural and the procedural approach in a model for reading academic texts in French. It is shown how text linguistics can be naturally extended to also comprise cognitive and cultural aspects; this is illustrated by the systematic comparison of Danish and French languages, belonging to Germanic and Romance languages respectively, a linguistic comparison which shows interesting differences also in the way Danes and French think and make texts. On a more general level, the article points to interesting relations between language, text, cognition, culture and society.
