Context - Traditional grammar (Fleishman 1982) and constructional analyses of the future in other languages, largely concentrate on verbal predications (Berghs 2010, Hilpert 2008) as locus of futurity. Furthermore, previous research in L1 (Dabrowska 2012) and L2 (Deknop et al. fc./2016) has shown individual productive variance in constructional profiles and lexical knowledge in adult speakers. Objective -This talk proposes a contrastive approach to describing constructional profiles and a conceptual network for futurity in L1 and advanced learners L2 Dutch and French (B1-C1 in CEFR). Corpus and procedure - The corpus is composed of elicited spoken Dutch and French, based on a questionnaire imposed on 20 L1/L2 speakers, who are asked questions about their future professional future in their mothertongue and thereafter in L2 Dutch or French (40 interactions). The questions combine different verb and nominal constructions for future time reference and are based on a usage-based construction network of futurity (AUTHOR 2009, 2012) inspired by Langacker's (2008) extended epistemic model. This conceptual CxG network future time includes variation in tense and epistemic modality. (Expected) results - We describe and measure the constructional L1 and L2 profiles, comparing/correlating them as to their productivity for futurity in L1/L2. There are two important extensions of previous studies on future constructions. (1) The future is conceived at the interface between different predication types. (2) Future talk is taken at the level of larger-than-clause interaction (Nikiforidou 2011; Östman 2004). (3) Non-epistemic modality and complex clauses encode future time. (4) The descriptive approach leads to guidelines for teaching more authentic L2 constructions for futurity based on L1 constructions beyond the traditional scope of verbs and/or modes in a coherent conceptual framework.

Federalism is often presented through metaphors, but little is known about the impact of such metaphors. Two experiments were conducted in Belgium presenting federalism as Tetris – with control and treatment groups – in order to grasp the influence of this metaphor. The first experiment reveals that being exposed to text with the Tetris metaphor influences respondents’ representations of federalism towards a more institutional representation and towards more regional autonomy. The second experiment confirms the importance of the text, and more specifically of the metaphor, if political knowledge is taken into account. Respondents with a lower level of political knowledge are those who are influenced by the metaphor, whereas respondents with a higher level are not. Therefore, framing the future of Belgian federalism using the metaphor of Tetris does matter: it affects both individuals’ representations of the federalization process and, consequently, their preferences vis-à-vis the institutional future of the country.

Based on an oral picture description task conducted among 46 participants, this contribution aims at describing how L1 speakers and learners of typologically different languages (French and Dutch) encode locative events. Moving away from the more traditional verb-centred approach, this contribution zooms in on the syntactic constructions used to encode locative events and the role they play in the overall discourse strategy in the productions of L1 speakers of Dutch and French and in those of French-speaking learners of Dutch. Our elicitation study confirms the typological differences between Dutch and French in the expression of location on the lexical level as well as on the constructional and discourse level. As for the learners’ descriptions, they appear to take an intermediate position between the native speakers of Dutch and French, suggesting that they become increasingly aware of the overall locative nature of Dutch.

Research on co-verbal gestures has revealed that gestures are cognitively and communicatively quite advantageous to both speakers and hearers. Despite these communicative benefits, there is considerable variation in speakers’ gestural behaviour, which can be attributed to a variety of social factors, such as age, gender, culture, etc. and cognitive factors (see, a.o., Gullberg, de Bot, & Volterra 2008; Hostetter & Alibali 2007; Hostetter & Potthoff 2012). There is also intra-speaker variation in that speakers gesture more on some occasions than others. For instance, people gesture more when they see their interlocutor. Also, in the case of misunderstandings, speakers have been shown to gesture more and in a more articulated fashion (Holler & Wilkin 2009). Alamillo, Coletta & Guidetti (2010) also show text type related variation: in their study, gestures were more frequent in explanations than in narratives. This paper contributes to the study of such gestural variation, but in a more constant context. The data analysed is drawn from video-taped picture descriptions where subjects (native speakers and learners of English, Dutch, and French) were asked to talk about the location of certain entities on these pictures (see Lemmens & Perrez 2012, 2017). The setting and task were in all cases identical. The focus of the present talk will be on the gestures used by speakers when locating entities, and in particular, variation in the use of gesture, both cross-linguistically as in relation to the topic that speakers talk about. One of the striking cross-linguistic differences is, for example, that the Dutch speakers use more representational gestures which express location, direction, shape and size, whereas the French speakers gesture much less frequently (if at all), and their gestures are less precise and of more meta- communicative nature. Further differences can be observed between native speakers and learners. On the whole, the learners use more reality-anchored gestures, but also more meta-communicative gestures pertaining to their linguistic shortcomings, such as open hands or shrugs, search for words gestures (see Ladewig 2011; Debras 2015). In addition, aligned with verbal hesitations and retakes, there is more “gestural stuttering”. Another striking variation is that in the pictures to be described (the same set for all subjects), there are scenes which lead to what, using Corts’ (2006) term, can be called “gestures burst”, where not only more speakers gesture but they also tend to gesture more intensively (multiple gestures applied to the same reality). Our data reveal gestural “heat-maps” which indicate the variable degree of gestural density for specific spatial configurations. As it turns out, these are typically more complex spatial configurations, where the gestures facilitate and/or augment the descriptive task at hand. In the learner data, such gesture bursts often occur to compensate their lack of lexical resources or accuracy (see also Gullberg 2009; Gullberg & Marziano 2013). The study not only confirms that gesture and language form a co-constructed unit of communication (cf. Kendon 2004, McNeill 1992), but that there is gestural variation just as much as there is verbal variation and that some variation is recurrent across languages and proficiency. [less ▲]

Le débat relatif à l'allocation universelle concerne la question de l'avenir des systèmes de sécurité sociale, point central qui favorise l'émergence de véritables clivages idéologiques, mais aussi plus généralement la définition et l'organisation de la communauté politique. Il est frappant d'observer dans ce débat que divers éléments de langage sont utilisés afin d'illustrer le concept d'allocation universelle, tels que le socle, le filet de sécurité ou encore le tremplin. Or, il a été montré que les métaphores jouent un rôle clé dans la représentation que se font les individus d'un concept - politique - abstrait. Dans cet article, nous étudions dans quelle mesure la confrontation d'individus à des métaphores peut influencer la manière dont ils se positionnent face à l'idée d'allocation universelle. Nos résultats indiquent que la stratégie d'utiliser délibérément une métaphore dans un discours politique peut être payante, car celle-ci peut influencer l'opinion des individus qui y sont soumis. Il convient cependant de rester attentif, car une même métaphore peut influencer les opinions dans des directions opposées. [less ▲]

This paper proposes a quantitative and qualitative corpus-based analysis of the use of metaphors in political discourse from the original perspective of citizen discourse. Our data were collected from focus group discussions respectively held in the French-speaking and Dutch-speaking parts of Belgium, which tackled the citizens’ perceptions of Belgian federalism. Our findings suggest that citizens do produce metaphors when talking about complex political processes and that these metaphors reveal different political visions. This research also suggests differences in saliency of the source domains in terms of which citizens make sense of Belgian federalism. In this regard, the family domain, and more especially the metaphor BELGIAN FEDERALISM IS A LOVE RELATIONSHIP appears to function as an important conceptual reference point for the citizens’ understanding of the political relations in the Belgian context.

Based on the idea that metaphors do not only reflect the perceived reality, but also function as cues through which citizens come to understand complex political processes, the aim of this study is to look at how specific metaphors might impact on the citizens' framing of Belgian federalism. To measure the impact of metaphors on the citizens' political representations, we conducted an experiment among 493 citizens based on an article published in the newspaper Le Soir in which Belgian federalism was compared to a Tetris game in both a text and an image. The participants were distributed into four experimental conditions according to the type of input they had been exposed to (text and image, text only, image only, no input) and were asked to perform a free description task. The productions of the participants were analyzed using keyword analyses and content analyses. The results suggest that the participants who had been exposed to the experimental text tend to differently frame their perception of Belgian federalism. These results show that reading the text, more than looking at the image, has an impact on the representations of the citizens but that this impact is short-lived. [less ▲]

This paper reports on the analysis of gestures in the expression of static locative relationships in French and Dutch, for L1 speakers as well as for francophone learners of Dutch (L2). The data analysed is drawn from video-taped picture descriptions where subjects were asked to talk about the location of certain entities on these pictures. Tutton (2012) has observed that in spatial descriptions gestures often express information that remains unexpressed in the verbal production and that typically the information that is gesturally expressed is directional (cf. also McNeill 2000; Gullberg 2009, 2010). Our data only partially confirm his findings: in most cases, gestures express information that is also expressed verbally. In addition, while gestures are indeed well-suited to express direction, we argue that a clearer distinction is needed between directional and (purely) locational gestures. We suggest that the crucial factor identifying a locative gesture is the fact of the gesture being anchored in the representational gesture space, an issue that hitherto has not been discussed in the literature. While all gestures are necessarily made in the gesture space, anchored gestures are those that receive a clear representational location. These can be pointing gestures, but often they are not (e.g., an anchored shape-, size- or manner-gesture). Functionally, they are not unlike what Liddell (2003) has called buoys in ASL, i.e., clearly located and stationary signs that function as conceptual landmarks while the discourse continues. The difference with anchored gestures is that the latter are not stationary. Non-anchored gestures do not have such a precise location. For example, directional gestures are not really anchored to a specific point, but merely indicate a direction. Similarly, some iconic gestures express locative relations (e.g. BETWEEN, EVERYWHERE), but are made without being anchored in the representational gesture space (e.g., just in front of the speaker, in centre space). We argue that despite their locative semantics, they are not locative gestures. In fact, anchored locative gestures could thus be seen as grounding predications, i.e. "an instance (but not a type) is thought of as having a particular location in the domain of instantiation" (Langacker 1991:57). In addition, typological differences are manifest in gesture. In line with Talmy’s (2000) typological distinction between verb-framed and satellite-framed languages, Dutch can be described as a “location-rich” language and the descriptions of the native Dutch speakers abound with locative descriptions, through the highly grammaticalised use of posture verbs but also via other linguistic means (prepositions, adverbs, etc.). French, in contrast, is “location-poor”: the French narrations have significantly fewer locative descriptions and the locative information is much more general. Instead, they add narrative detail and meta-linguistic comments to their descriptions. The francophone learners of Dutch (with 3 levels of proficiency) use more gestures revealing the challenge that free expression in a second language poses, especially for the lowest proficiency levels: they use more shape gestures, more enactment gestures (e.g., pulling a drawer, brushing one’s hair, etc.), more reality-anchored gestures (e.g., pointing at one’s shoes when talking about shoes), and more meta-communicative gestures indicating their lexical shortcomings, e.g., word- search gestures (see Ladewig 2011). Overall, and as can be expected, the low proficiency L2 speakers use almost more gestures than words, which can be seen as a visual compensation for their lack of lexical accuracy; the gestural expression of advanced learners, in contrast, is much more locational in nature, in line with the target language (cf. also Gullberg 2009, 2010, Alferink & Gullberg 2014).

In the literature, the political impact of metaphors has often been taken for granted from metaphor analysis in political discourse. However, a more global understanding of what this political impact could consist of, is still lacking from the current research agenda. To be able to account for how metaphors, through discourses, actively shape the political reality, it is important to look at the relationships between metaphorical discourses and their environment. Based on the idea that metaphors do not only reflect the perceived reality, but also function as cues through which citizens come to understand complex political processes (Bougher 2012), the aim of this study is precisely to look at how specific metaphors might impact on the citizens’ framing of Belgian federalism. To measure the impact of metaphors on the citizens’ political representations and attitudes, we conducted a first experiment among 493 citizens based on an article (including a text and an image) published in the newspaper Le Soir (13-14 July 2013) in which Belgian federalism was deliberately compared to a Tetris game (AUTHORS, submitted). The participants were distributed into four experimental conditions according to the type of input they had been exposed to (respectively no input, text and image, image only, text only), and were asked to perform three interrelated tasks (a free description task, a picture association task and a questionnaire measuring their attitude towards Belgian federalism). The productions of the participants in the description task have been analyzed using keyword analyses and content analyses. The results suggest that the participants who had been exposed to the experimental text tend to differently frame their perception of Belgian federalism (among other things, by highlighting the notion of transfer of competences from the federal state to the sub-national entities). Whereas these results suggest that reading the text might have an impact on the representations of the citizens, they do not allow us to pinpoint the specific role played by the Tetris metaphor itself on these different representations. To further determine to what extent the observed influence of the text on the citizens’ representations can be attributed to the Tetris metaphor, we developed a follow-up experiment for which we produced two versions of the experimental text, namely a version in which the Tetris metaphor remained explicit and a version in which it had been left out. We conducted the experiment among 600 citizens distributed into 3 experimental conditions (respectively no input, original text, original text without explicit reference to the Tetris metaphor). They were asked to achieve the same three tasks as in the original experiment. The results are currently being analyzed and will be the main subject of our contribution. This experimental design should allow us (i) to observe the specific influence of the Tetris metaphor on the integration of textual information and (ii) to assess to what extent it shapes the citizens’ representations of Belgian federalism.

Political parties are key political actors in both Quebec and Wallonia. As their foremost ambition is to govern their region, these parties clearly contribute to shaping its identity and image. This chapter aims at exploring how political parties in Quebec and in Wallonia speak about their region by focusing on an analysis of their electoral manifestos for the period 1994–2014. Using a quantitative and qualitative approach combining insights from lexicometry, cognitive linguistics and political science, the aims of this contribution are (i) to unravel how the parties perceive their region and its future development, (ii) to identify relevant evolutions in their perception of their respective region, and (iii) to assess to what extent parallels can be drawn between the two regions.

In the literature, the political impact of metaphors has often been taken for granted from metaphor analysis in political discourse, be it elite discourse or media discourse. However, a more global understanding of what this political impact could consist of, is still lacking from the current research agenda. As Koller (2009:121) puts it: “metaphor helps construct particular aspects of reality and reproduce (or subvert) dominant schemas.” To be able to account for how metaphors, through discourses, actively shape the political reality, it is important to look at the relationships between metaphorical discourses and their environment. Based on the idea that metaphors do not only reflect the perceived reality, but also function as cues through which citizens come to understand complex political processes and through which they shape political behaviors, the aim of this study is precisely to look at how specific metaphors might impact on the citizens’ framing of Belgian federalism. To measure the impact of metaphors on the citizens’ political representations and attitudes, we developed an experimental set-up based on an article published in the Belgian newspaper Le Soir (13-14 July 2013) in which Belgian federalism was deliberately compared to a Tetris game. The original article included a picture and a text (208 words), which were used as authentic experimental material. For this experiment, we distinguished three experimental conditions and one control condition. In the first experimental condition (full condition), the participants were exposed to the original article (including the text and the picture). In the second and third experimental conditions, the participants were respectively exposed either to the text (text condition) or the picture (picture condition). In the control condition, the participants weren’t exposed to any metaphorical material at all. In the second stage of the experiment, the participants were asked to achieve three interrelated tasks: (i) a free description task, based on a free description of their own perception of Belgian federalism, (ii) an association task, in which they had to select a picture which they found the most appropriate to describe Belgian federalism, and finally (iii) a questionnaire measuring the participants’ political knowledge of Belgian federalism and attitudes towards its future development. In a post-test held four weeks after the first experiment, the three tasks of the second stage have been replicated. This experiment has been conducted in autumn 2013 among 400 students. Comparing the various experimental conditions will make it possible (i) to measure the impact of the Tetris metaphor on the citizens’ perceptions and representations of Belgian federalism, (ii) to assess to what extent the different metaphorical media differently contribute to this impact and (iii) to measure the long-term impact of this metaphor on the citizens’ political representations and attitudes. In answering these questions, this study will contribute to a better understanding of the role and functions metaphors play in political discourse, and more globally in our everyday political interactions.

The article deals with the typological differences between the Romance lan- guage French and the Germanic languages German and Dutch for the linguistic expressions of posture and location. It describes how these typological differ- ences can be problematic for French-speaking learners of German and Dutch. The main difference between both types of languages is that posture and loca- tion tend to be encoded by posture verbs in Germanic languages and by very general verbs in Romance languages (Talmy 2000). After a detailed description of the semantic networks of the German and Dutch posture verbs, the paper takes a critical look at how these expressions are dealt with in teaching manuals. It further presents strategies for the efficient teaching of posture verbs to foreign language learners. These strategies are among others awareness-raising exercis- es about the compulsory use of posture verbs in Germanic languages and the description of conceptual metaphors in different languages. These pedagogical avenues for the efficient teaching of the Dutch and German posture verbs con- stitute a first step towards the elaboration of an experimental set-up aiming at verifying them.

In België bestaat er een nauwe band tussen talen (Nederlands-Frans) en regionale identiteiten (Vlaming-Waal). Echter, de aanwezigheid van Franstaligen in Vlaanderen en van Nederlandstaligen in Wallonië laat zien dat deze band niet automatisch is. Deze twee (onder)bevolkingsgroepen lijken dus een ideaal studiemateriaal om de ingewikkelde relatie tussen taal (talen) en identiteit(en) te bestuderen. Ondanks de belangstelling van verschillende disciplines (onder meer politieke wetenschappen, geschiedenis, sociologie en taalkunde) voor dit onderwerp, valt het toch op dat deze bevolkingsgroepen nog nooit onderzocht werden. In dit onderzoeksproject willen we daarom aan de hand van biografische gesprekken nagaan (i) hoe deze minoriteitsgroepen in een anderstalige context hun identiteit opbouwen, en (ii) in hoeverre ze identiteitsstrategieën gebruiken naargelang van de communicatiecontext waarin ze zich bevinden. Om deze vragen te beantwoorden, zullen biografische gesprekken verzameld worden die die vanuit het interdisciplinaire perspectief van de sociologie, de sociale psychologie, de sociolinguïstiek en de taalkunde geanalyseerd zullen worden. In deze bijdrage zullen we specifieker ingaan op de methodologie die wij zullen gebruiken om deze biografische gesprekken te analyseren. We zullen meer bepaald uitgaan van een tweeledige analyse van identiteitsmarkeerders. Ten eerste zullen we een semantische studie van de identiteitscategorieën verrichten, door de lexicale eenheden te bestuderen die door de informanten gebruikt worden om hun identiteit te omschrijven. Het is hiermee de bedoeling om de sociale categorieën die de respondenten gebruiken verder in kaart te brengen. Ten tweede zullen wij een psychosociale studie van de identiteitsstrategieën van de informanten verrichten. Vanuit dit perspectief kan een identiteit beschouwd worden als het resultaat van de interactie tussen een “identiteit voor zichzelf” en een “identiteit voor de anderen”. In dit onderdeel van onze studie willen we de persoonlijke identiteitsstrategieën van de informanten aan het licht brengen onder meer door hun identiteitskeuzes, zoals bijvoorbeeld de keuze voor een taalvariëteit in een bepaalde communicatiecontext, nauwkeurig te bestuderen. Deze tweedelige methode zal het mogelijk maken om de relatie tussen taal en identiteit in België beter te begrijpen en nauwkeuriger te kunnen omschrijven. [less ▲]
