Abstract

Résumé

Les recherches portant sur l’acquisition de l’expression du genre grammatical en français langue seconde (L2) nous montrent, entre autres, que les apprenants réussissent plus souvent à marquer le genre avec un nom masculin (vs. un nom féminin) et sur les déterminants plutôt que sur les adjectifs. En revanche, il n’est pas clair si ces tendances générales s’appliquent de la même manière à l’ensemble des noms, adjectifs et déterminants concernés. En d’autres termes, nous pouvons nous demander à quel point l’expression du genre grammatical est déterminée par des spécificités lexicales. Est analysée, dans cette étude, l’évolution du marquage en genre produit par un groupe de 20 apprenants britanniques du français L2 sur une période de 21 mois. Des productions orales et écrites recueillies à trois périodes différentes ont été analysées, et le marquage en genre avec cinq noms féminins fréquents –  – a fait l’objet d’une étude approfondie. Les résultats montrent que l’expression du genre grammatical se développe différemment avec ces cinq noms, résultat qui est interprété à l’aide des approches basées sur l’usage.
