Les apports possibles de la phraséologie à la didactique des langues étrangères

Abstract : The article explores the advantages of a phraseological analysis of scientific discourse regarding the difficulties foreign learners may have in mastering the English conventional formulas of this specific genre. Our study postulates the existence of a language shared by scientists throughout the disciplines and henceforth, thanks to English, the continents. To observe the characteristics of this General Scientific Language, a parallel corpus containing bi-texts from three related fields (chemistry, physics and biology) was set up. The exploitation of this corpus allowed the construction of a phraseological database using a methodology that assures its reexploitability, in particular for the design of tools destined to help foreign language learners. Ultimately, the article presents a project aiming at the construction of a multifunction phraseological dictionary offering a double access to the phraseological units (PU), an access via the form of the PU (based on a semasiological approach to language) and an access via the meaning of the PU (based on an onomasiological approach to language).
