L'élision du schwa dans les interactions parents-enfant : étude de corpus

Abstract : The present article investigates schwa elision in the acquisition of French L1. Using four dense corpora of natural children-parental interactions, we examine the variation between the occurrence and non-occurrence of the schwa in both the children's and adults' speech. In particular, we focus on schwa elision in the following monosyllabic words: ce, de, je, le, me, ne, que, se and te. The children's productions show a low frequency of schwa elision and a gradual increase throughout the acquisition period. Our findings offer insights into the specificities of child-directed speech. In fact, the latter is found to contain less instances of schwa elision than the adult-directed speech in our corpora. In addition, parents seem to adjust their discourse according to their child's linguistic development.
