Analyse des stratégies de chunking en interprétation simultanée
Myriam Piccaluga, Bernard Harmegnies.

In this paper, which is meant as a methodological account, we focus on a new variable (“Ecart Inter Syllabique”: EIS), intended to improve the study of speech chunks produced by subjects performing a task of simultaneous interpreting (“IS”). The variable is introduced on the basis of a discussion of the main methodological trends in the field, with the aim of improving the validity and reliability of the numerical treatments applied to the study of IS. An experimental essay is performed on a prototypical sample of 4 subjects, performing IS under several conditions. The behaviour of the variable within the design suggests its interest for future research.
