Le plurilinguisme au cœur de l’action

Abstract : Ethnolinguistic research led during the construction phases of the big mining projects in New Caledonia, allowed to bring to light the value of a non-standardized plurilingualism, anchored in languages with no economic value. This plurilingualism of the Relation and its didactics which is instrinsically connected to professional activity is the one of "langage go-betweens", administrative assistants of a department dedicated to international mobility of the workforce involved in these big construction projects. As part of the transformation processes of the workforce into a "wordforce", the linguistic capital of these "langage go-betweens" does not lead them to better professional recognition. However, this "didactics of action" questions languages acquisition and transmission practices.
