Historically, literature has never ceased to have reciprocal relationships with the various sciences or disciplines that have historically been concerned with the study of the respective workings of languages. Curiosity about language goes back a very long time, since the God of the Old Testament created the universe and its parts by naming things and took vengeance on the men who claimed to raise the Tower of Babel into heaven by their languages ​​diversified so that they no longer understand each other. More recently, the Greek Corax began around 460 BC. to teach in Sicily the method which had served him as a tyrant’s minister, in order to explain with great success the downfall of that tyrant. This “rhetorician” had as a pupil Tisias, who was the teacher of Gorgias, the rhetorician of whom Plato speaks. Rhetoric will prevail among the sophists. But the latter will be greatly criticized by Plato, who reproaches them for defending any thing or its opposite without worrying about the truth, as long as they are paid… About three centuries before Jesus Christ, Aristotle founded a rhetoric based on universal based principles and defined as the art of speaking persuasively or dialectically, in which the idea of ​​veracity plays a key role. Rhetoric is mainly based on reasoning. As far as literature is concerned, the focus at the time was on the concept of style. Cicero tells us in the De oratore that Aristotle wrote a history of rhetoric, but unfortunately this text has been lost. According to Aristotle, the best style is the one that teaches us the most things and teaches them the best. After rhetoric, literature on their study had cultivated a different relationship with grammar. In the west, the grammar that was developed in the 3rd century B.C. in the Hellenic world, to study and preserve the so-called classical texts, especially those of Homer. For a long time, the special relationship between grammar and literature was reduced to studying the texts of “good writers”. Of course, the grammarians’ approach to the analysis of a literary text was limited to the systematic study of the constituent elements of the language. After the era of grammar, which was intended as a way of further clarifying a literary text and unveiling its mysteries, the 19the Century. In fact, the importance of this new approach stems from the fact that stylistics, like grammar, wanted to show that it had something to say about literary texts. Approaching a literary text stylistically means, in principle, studying the processes that an author uses to achieve a certain effect on the reader. Also, at the beginning of the 20the At the beginning of the 20th century, when linguistics developed and positioned itself as a well-structured science with its own means for analyzing linguistic facts, linguists broke with the habit of only studying the literary texts of well-known authors. They also tried to take into account the achievements of the crowd of speakers. In other words, modern linguists remarkably expand their field of analysis by giving meaning to all linguistic production. In France, the birth of structuralism is linked to the revolt against traditionalist tendencies in literary studies based on the historical contribution and traditional criticism related to the poet’s life, to his time and to his historical journey. In fact, a remarkable development of a linguistics of cohesion and textual coherence based on pragmatic currents and theories of expression began at that time. These remarkably facilitated the linguistic analysis of the literary text in that they managed to embody the dark zones of the author’s imagination by evoking the external dimension of meaning. Therefore, the interpretation of the utterance by recourse to external aspects of the text contributes more or less to the completeness of the study of a literary text. So to put the utterance at the center of the utterance is to consider it as an activity; a very unique activity in the sense that we have long ignored the crucial role it plays in the process of interpreting meaning outside of the text. This allows us to highlight the function that enables propositions and in relation to which they are structured. Furthermore, through pronunciation, we can consider language as the discourse that allows us to understand literature not simply as a set of texts, but as a process that destabilizes the spontaneous distinction between text and context.

Finally, this international symposium “Linguistics/Literature/Communication: Some Possibilities of Partnership” invites researchers to explore the possibilities of yet undisclosed links between linguistics, literature and communication.
