L'expression de l'ancrage temporel dans la traduction du thaï vers le français

Abstract : The present research is situated in the domain of contrastive studies. It covers, in an analytical perspective, the translation of a literary work from Thai to French and in particular the use of verb tenses. Since these two languages are not linguistically close and are significantly different, difficulties arise when translating the expression of tenses from one language to the other. The main difference comes from the fact that Thai language, which does not have any inflectional morphology and possesses invariable words, expresses tenses by addition of morphemes. Furthermore, Thai uses the primary tense system of three main moments : past, present and future. On the contrary, in French, which is an inflectional language, the verb carries the tense mark, and as such, every verbal form indicates a grammatical tense : a verbal form indicates the moment at which the process occurs. To express tenses, French uses tenses which are divided into periods which include the secondary temporal system. Compared to the French tense system, Thai language uses different ways of expressing the moments at which an event occurs. Therefore, the objectif of this reserach is to study the system which commands the usage of verbal tenses of each language in order to find equivalent forms. We hope that this research will provide a good starting point for comparative linguistics studies between Thai and French
