# Représentation de l'espace et du temps dans un récit d'événement personnel, rôle de l'intonation et du geste, étude de cas.

Abstract : The author's analysis is a case study based on a data bank comprising short filmed extracts of interviews between English-speaking French students and young English native speakers. A software which provides simultaneous analysis of intonation and gesture has been developed by the Phonetics Research Laboratory (Lille 3 University), enabling the characteristics of both the speech and the gestures used in relating an event to be defined. This synchronous reading highlights the use of the prepositions in', on' and `off' as used in relating an event. In such a context, the spatio-temporal representation of the speaker is structured around the football pitch from which he was sent off. The acoustic analysis will show how the prepositions have a function which is both localizing (reference to an existing place) and discursive. Relating the event involves structuring both orally and by gestures, within a spatial context recreated by speech.
