Dynamiques linguistiques et identitaires à travers les biographies langagières des immigrés sri lankais en France

Abstract : In this study, we are interested in the linguistic and identity dynamisms of Tamil and Sinhala Sri Lankan immigrants in France.
Through the language biography and the semi-structured interview, the collected data makes it possible to study the reconfiguration of the verbal repertoires of the twelve Sri Lankan immigrants and their identity strategies in French society. The results show the link between autonomy and French for settled migrants. This research contributes to understanding the dynamics of language socialization of educated immigrants who learned French in Sri Lanka in order to prepare for their immigration, as well as of those who did not learn French in Sri Lanka.
We try to show how the experience of mobility and the development of the plurilingual verbal repertoire intervened in the process of identity construction, by leading to the deployment of identity strategies specific to this context.
