Les tunnels ont-ils des bouches ?

Abstract : Do tunnels have bouches (in French) ? Mainly, this article aims at depicting “the semantic identity” of the French noun bouche (mouth). A lexicographic divergence about the semantic affinity between bouche and the French noun tunnel provides a starting point. Indeed, the idea is to figure out this disagreement by the means of a semantic description of bouche. In section 1, we give some clues about the theoretical and methodological frames of our work. Then, we describe the noun bouche viewed as a polysemic word. At first, we investigate this noun's different meanings in order to set its different acceptations (or acceptions). Secondly, we build a semantic analysis, rooted in two main acceptations, aiming at discovering a semantic invariant suiting the noun bouche. A conclusion about this analysis leads to answer the question : in French, do tunnels have bouches ?
