Étude du bilinguisme gréco-latin dans le corpus épistolaire de Cicéron

Abstract : Based on the study of the use and peculiarities of Greco-Latin bilingualism applied to books I and II Ad Atticum of the Correspondance, our research will sketch a first glimpse of the stylistic characteristics of Cicero’s epistolary sermo. Our goal is to show that the insertion of Greek sequences, into a text originally composed in Latin, reflects the linguistic motivation of the speaker who seeks to confer a particular style on his writing. We will first consider bilingualism in Roman Antiquity society in order to identify the main issues at stake. To do this, we will consider the phenomenon throughout the Italian peninsula and then focus our study on a particular case of bilingualism: Greek/Latin contacts. We can then establish classification criteria for classifying the Greek syntagms of our corpus and perform two types of analysis: morpho-syntaxic and pragmatic-semantic. Depending on the results obtained and for books I and II Ad Atticum alone, we will finally distinguish Cicero’s linguistic motivations for the use of Greek in his epistolary exchanges.
