Séquentialité de la perception haptique et opérations descriptives : analyse qualitative du discours de trente locuteurs francophones sur quatre objets courants

Abstract : This work aims to explain why the haptic description of an object is considered arduous (or even impossible), despite the tact’s sequentiality: when they perceive by the tact, the subjects begin analysing the objects and continue by configuring their mental image, which should perfectly allow progression of descriptive processes. In order to explain this paradox, we compare the oral descriptions of four familiar objects produced without preparation by thirty speakers: ten congenitally blind, ten late blind and ten blindfolded sighted persons. The results show that the difficulty to describe an object based on its haptic perception refers to the tact’s sequentiality only when the object cannot be easily categorised initially, because the speaker needs this categorisation before efficiently processing the other descriptive operations. However, contrasting the parts and properties of the objects distinguished by the three informant groups, we find that this difficulty and its solution consist of training towards haptic perception, developing an exploratory strategy and turning the collected cues into language.
