Des énoncés sans énonciateurs ? Du surlignement à la citation dans Kindle d’Amazon

Abstract : Since 2010, the Kindle software allows his users to highlight passages of digital books and makes them appeared automatically on a dedicated network : Amazon Highlights. The most highlighted passages (« popular highlights ») are also selected for inclusion on, becoming citations next to customers feedback. From Kindle reader software to Amazon sites, what happened ? How explain that individual acts of enunciation become self-sufficient to the point that they can be read outside their original context ? Using the notion of "énonciation éditoriale", this article makes the assumption of a powerflu editorial machine that foreshadows the scene of writing, reading and actions of readers to facilitate the creation of specific forms of writing. Indeed, these forms, as readers, are converted so as to become resources that feed databases and serve marketing and economic objectives.
