  • The two articles of «Langage» and «Langue», published in 1765 in the 9th volume of the great French Encyclopédie by Diderot and D’Alembert, treat some essential philosophical questions on the human ability of communication with linguistic signs. Nevertheless, as the two authors Jaucourt and Beauzée did not share completely identic points of view, the comparative lecture of both articles reveals a complementary perspective, particularly relating to the origin of language as a divine gift or humans’ creation for communicative needs. AThe two articles of «Langage» and «Langue», published in 1765 in the 9th volume of the great French Encyclopédie by Diderot and D’Alembert, treat some essential philosophical questions on the human ability of communication with linguistic signs. Nevertheless, as the two authors Jaucourt and Beauzée did not share completely identic points of view, the comparative lecture of both articles reveals a complementary perspective, particularly relating to the origin of language as a divine gift or humans’ creation for communicative needs. A further aspect of divergence concerns the textual composition of the article « Langage » as a structured informative text, and the article « Langue » as a long and freely composed writing including personal remarks by the author. The following article deals with the potential of approaches to the Encyclopédie in modern linguistics, concretely demonstrated in the comparative analysis of these two articles.show moreshow less
