Enseignement/apprentissage de l'écrit universitaire dans les disciplines scientifiques

Abstract : This study focuses on the improvement of university students’ scientific writing. The topic of research can be described as a nexus between corpus linguistics and phraseology. We are essentially interested in the interdisciplinary phraseology used for scientific expressions purposes. We aim to develop a corpus-based teaching-learning methodology that concerns collocations and frequent constructions related to notions : “hypothesis, experiment and results”. Our goal is to help foreign students enhance their academic writing in french language.
To better understand the difficulties encountered by the students with regards to the found collocations, we establish a diagnosis that includes the comparison between collocations in experts’ and professors’ corpora as well as the analysis of the constructions used by the professors in their lecture notes and by the students when writing their reports. This analysis enabled us shed light on the errors and the cases of non-use of some phraseology phenomena and was essential to elaborate our reflections from an educational point of view.
The obtained results show that students, who are not experienced yet in writing, face some difficulties related to academic writing especially in what is associated with phraseology. In order to fill this gap and satisfy the linguistic needs of students, we have sketched out some didactic steps so as to guide students towards autonomy in learning phraseology by exploiting corpora.
