Introduction

I am a PhD student at the LSFB-Lab. I received a research grant from the F.R.S.-FNRS (2012-2016) to carry out the following research project on register variation: Depending on the situational context where we are located, we are used to adapt our way of speaking according to multiple factors such as the formality level, the audience or the channel. This kind of adaptation, which is referred to as “register variation”, may affect many aspects of the language. This PhD project focuses on register variation in French Belgian Sign Language (LSFB). How does this phenomenon look like in a signed language? Which factors have the greatest impact on register variation? How can we describe a formal or an informal discourse in LSFB? By tackling these various questions, my project aims to draw an overview of the registers of LSFB according to their phonetic and phonological features. My study will be based on the annotation and analysis of a set of data selected from the LSFB Corpus which contains a representative sample of this language’s current uses. The first step of my work will consist in identifying the recurring phonological variables of LSFB and their phonetic realizations. The next step will involve the analysis of the influence of external factors (audience, formality, interaction, etc.) and internal factors (phonetic, syntactic and iconic contexts) on the usage levels of those variables. This will be achieved by combining both qualitative and quantitative approaches. This analysis will lead to identify the variation patterns of LSFB that are typical of the different registers and to determine the relative influence of each factor on variation. In addition to my PhD project, I collaborate in the LSFB Corpus project that you can follow on Facebook.

Introduction

Postdoctorante, je collabore actuellement avec le Laboratoire de Langue des signes de Belgique francophone (LSFB Lab).

Mes intérêts de recherche concernent la sociolinguistique, la linguistique de corpus, les langues signées ainsi que la phonétique et la phonologie. 

En 2018, j'ai défendu ma thèse de doctorat intitulée Vers une description des registres de la langue des signes de Belgique francophone (LSFB): aspects phonologiques et variations phonétiques

La question au centre de ce projet doctoral concerne la variation des registres en langue des signes de Belgique francophone (LSFB) : comment se manifestent les changements linguistiques dus à la variété des contextes énonciatifs dans une langue signée ? Quels paramètres influencent ce type de variation ? Quelles caractéristiques permettent de distinguer un discours formel d'un discours informel en LSFB? Abordant ces différentes questions, ce projet vise à dresser un panorama des registres de la LSFB en fonction de leurs caractéristiques phonétiques et phonologiques.
