Metaphores et representations du cerveau plurilingue: conceptions naives ou construction du savior? Exemples dans le contexte d'enseignement andorran (Metaphors and Representations of the Multilingual Brain: Naive Conceptions or Knowledge Construction? Examples in the Context of Andorran Education).

This article concentrates on the use of metaphors characterizing a multilingual brain in a corpus of oral interactions drawn from the Andorran part of an international research study. First, the situation and the status of metaphors in fields connected to the elaboration of knowledge is questioned. Next, the most important metaphors associated to the representations of the brain are reconsidered. Finally, the analysis deals with the metaphors of the Andorran corpus. Their nature and function are observed, both from the point of view of the representations thus created and from that of the elaboration of a common knowledge necessary to the discourse economy of the group.
