Point de vue linguistique sur la dépression

Abstract : This paper aims to characterise the discourse of female patients suffering from major depressive disorder. It is based on interviews conducted by a psychiatrist as part of his psychiatric assessment. The quantitative analysis of the emotional lexicon is supplemented by a qualitative analysis of disfluency, epistemic stance and coherence. It is argued that depression has effects beyond the lexicon, as the ability of patients to name their affects is impaired. At the discourse level, relational and referential coherence is affected, which corroborates the self-awareness theory.
