QU’EST-CE QUE LES LANGUES DE SPECIALITE ONT DE SI SPECIAL ?

HARDING, E


This paper attempts to investigate the notion of language for special purposes and discusses it from the point of view of reading comprehension and its pedagogical implications. The meanings, connotations and inadequacies of the terms "langue de spécialité" and "language for special purposes" are discussed. A distinction is made between students learning a foreign language when they are already familiar with the subject matter and students learning a foreign language when they are already familiar with the subject matter. A reading comprehension course is described and as a result, a new emphasis is put upon the cognitive field of a discipline rather than on the language pertaining to it. Finally, a distinction is drawn between two types of reading : a "poorer" one with only surface understanding of the facts and opinions exposed and a richer one where the reader grasps all the implications and connotations present in the original literature.
