Abstract

In spite of its multidisciplinarity, tourism can be considered as a specialized field as it owns a peculiar terminology. In this paper, we analyse the vocabulary of tourism from both a terminological and a neological point of view, based on a specialised corpus realised at the University of Verona. Among the different word-formation processes, compounds formed by « tourisme + ADJ » prove to be a productive syntactic pattern and justify the interest of an incremental model. For several reasons, neologisms coined from this pattern are not always catachrestic innovations. On the borderline between specialised and non-specialised discourse, the neology of tourism sheds light on both societal transformations and the evolution of a discipline, tourism itself, still in search of recognition.
Corpus, Néologie, Néologismes, Langue de spécialité, Terminologie, Tourisme
Malgré sa multidisciplinarité, le tourisme peut être considéré comme un domaine de spécialité à part entière et possède une terminologie qui lui est propre. Dans cet article, nous proposons une analyse du vocabulaire touristique d’un point de vue terminologique et néologique, en nous basant sur un corpus spécialisé réalisé à l’Université de Vérone. Parmi les procédés de formation, la composition « tourisme +ADJ » s’avère un moule syntaxique productif et justifie l’intérêt d’un modèle incrémental. Les néologismes formés sur ce patron s’ajoutent souvent à des dénominations existantes pour plusieurs raisons. À la frontière entre discours spécialisés et non spécialisés, la néologie du tourisme permet de saisir les mutations sociétales et l’évolution d’une discipline encore en quête de reconnaissance.
