Les expressions idiomatiques dans le journal Le Monde Diplomatique : analyse des valeurs expressive et contextuelle des traductions français-croate

Abstract : The idiomatic expressions are specific type of language units that convey images of reality, corresponding to so-called stereotyped situations and clichés. This status gives them an expressive force of which the journalists are particularly fond. Idiomatic expressions are the lexicalizations of language-culture values and the transfer of those values into the target language (TL) is often hampered by the absence of an expression containing the same values in the TL. In this study, we use the notion of value to distinguish the double dimension of the idiomatic expressions: their expressive value (the value conveyed in the language) and their contextual value (the meaning expressed in the speech). To achieve our goal, we focus on the Franco-Croatian parallel corpus Le Monde diplomatique, which reflects specific cultural and political contexts and implies an intercultural approach to translation. The aim of this study is to analyse the translation strategies when dealing with idiomatic expressions, and to evaluate to what extent these strategies fail to transfer both values of idiomatic expressions, expressive and contextual, and force the translator to choose between one of them. To achieve this analysis, the paper examines the relationship between linguistic and discursive patterns at stake in these expressions by taking into account the denotative and connotative aspects of the language.
