Le chemin de l'audible : la structuration dynamique de la perception par les verbes höras (suédois) et kuulua (finnois) « être audible »

Abstract : The paper investigates constructions with the verbs "höras", in Swedish, and "kuulua", in Finnish, both meaning ‘to be audible’. The aim is to shed light on the semantic structure of ‘audibility’ and the dynamic conceptualization of the audible event. The paper draws on conceptual tools provided by cognitive linguistics, namely the notions of profiling and path schema. Both verbs are used with a subject referring to the stimulus, while the experiencer remains implicit. "Höras" co-occurs most often with items denoting the static location of the stimulus, whereas constructions with "kuulua" display a strong tendency to profile the point of departure of the sound. This difference is accounted for in terms of linguistic actualization. "Höras" carries a morphological trace of person marking, i.e. of a link between the event and a specific spatio-temporal setting. It therefore allows to foreground the actual location of the sound. "Kuulua" presents the event at its initial stage, as a capacity to be perceived by an unspecific experiencer.
