RÊVES, VISIONS ET APPARITIONS DANS LES RÉCITS HAGIOGRAPHIQUES DE LANGUE FRANÇAISE : ÉTUDE LEXICALE ET DISCURSIVE

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

The article focuses on a discursive analysis of the hagiographic texts written in French. It investigates the lexical relation among four terms : dream, vision, dream apparition, and relics discovery. It purports to offer a semantic and lexical analysis of these terms, the lexical phrases belonging to the same word family, as well as the discursive consequences their use has on the text structure of this specific literary genre, i.e. hagiographic text.
