Le champ lexico-sémantique de l'eau en ḥassāniyya et en zénaga : héritages, emprunts et innovations lexicales

Abstract : The lexico-semantic field of water in Ḥassāniyya Arabic and Zenaga Berber : inheritances, borrowings and lexical innovations If water is scarce in the desert, the lexicon relating to water is rather rich in Ḥassāniyya. It has many peculiarities which, in part, have their origin in contact with the Zenaga Berber substrate. The article studies the lexicon of the two languages in parallel and compares it with the varieties which are close to them in order to identify the borrowings, the source language (if possible) and the innovations (shared or not). Taking into account metaphorical uses and analyzing numerous proverbs enrich the semantic study of the lexicon. The article has three parts. The first deals with water in its natural state. The next one is devoted to wells, which play a central role for the Bedouins. The last relates to the drawing and consumption of water.
