Des Anagrammes chez Homère ? De Saussure aux commentateurs anciens

Abstract : Since the discovery of Ferdinand de Saussure's anagram research, a whole piece regarding Homeric texts has been left undisclosed. By studying related unpublished manuscripts, the steps of the linguist's quest for a phonic reproduction as the structure for archaic poetic works can be revealed. The aim of this paper is to show that, through his research, Saussure goes back to an ancient tradition of interpreting Homeric poems by emphasizing their plays of tones.
