Moments (inter)discursifs et emplois métaphoriques du champ dérivationnel
de "ciment" dans la presse Chypriote-grecque. Une approche pragmatico-sémantique
This article intends to closely investigate a particular ad hoc metaphor,
which concerns the verb "τσιμεντώνω"
"cement" and its derivational fields as they are built upon or interwoven
with dynamic intertextual networks in a newspaper. The diversity of usages
that this metaphor goes through raises the problem of the semantic displacement
or innovation. The study of the metaphorical use of the verb "cement"
and its derivational field in a variety of contexts where they appear,
leads one to problematize it in the light of the 'trigger utterance',
historically and ideologically charged. In other words, the metaphor should
be investigated within discursive and intertextual relations, which seem
to be established in a newspaper. Semantic movements, multiple interpretations
and readings, ambiguity and argumentation are the main problems that this
metaphor typically raises in the present study. A textual, enunciative
and componential approach will be here adopted.
