Explorer, mesurer, contextualiser. Quelques apports de la textométrie à l'analyse des discours

Abstract : This research aims at describing the French President Macron's public speeches, in comparison with those of the former French Fifth Republic presidents (1958-2019). Our paper bears testimony to the extent to which textometric methods are relevant to investigate different types of linguistic phenomena: irregularities in word distribution patterns, vocabulary change over time, systematic and organized overviews of attested forms in context, statistical summary of local syntagmatic contexts using cooccurrences, visualizations of corpus structure using correspondence analysis and additive tree clustering. Our goal is twofold: providing an analysis of Macron's speeches on the one hand, and showing how textometry enables linguists to answer standard questions investigating corpora on the other hand. In that respect, we will resort to two software programs: Hyperbase Web and TXM.
