Rencontre entre les dirigeants du Parlement tchèque et du Parlement slovaque . Il existe un haut niveau d'intelligibilité mutuelle entre les langues slaves occidentales étroitement liées , le tchèque et le slovaque .

En linguistique , l'intelligibilité mutuelle est une relation entre des langues ou des dialectes dans laquelle des locuteurs de variétés différentes mais apparentées peuvent facilement se comprendre sans familiarité préalable ni effort particulier. Il est parfois utilisé comme un critère important pour distinguer les langues des dialectes, bien que des facteurs sociolinguistiques soient souvent également utilisés.

L'intelligibilité entre les langues peut être asymétrique, les locuteurs d'une compréhension plus de l'autre que les locuteurs de l'autre comprenant la première. Lorsqu'elle est relativement symétrique, elle est qualifiée de «mutuelle». Il existe à des degrés divers parmi de nombreuses langues du monde apparentées ou géographiquement proches, souvent dans le contexte d'un continuum dialectal .

La distance linguistique est le nom du concept de calcul d'une mesure de la différence entre les langues. Plus la distance linguistique est élevée, plus l'intelligibilité mutuelle est faible.

Intelligibility[edit]

For individuals to achieve moderate proficiency or understanding in a language (called L2) other than their first language (L1) typically requires considerable time and effort through study and practical application.[1] Advanced speakers of a second language typically aim for intelligibility, especially in situations where they work in their second language and the necessity of being understood is high.[2]However, many groups of languages are partly mutually intelligible, i.e. most speakers of one language find it relatively easy to achieve some degree of understanding in the related language(s). Often the languages are genetically related, and they are likely to be similar to each other in grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, or other features.

Intelligibility among languages can vary between individuals or groups within a language population according to their knowledge of various registers and vocabulary in their own language, their exposure to additional related languages, their interest in or familiarity with other cultures, the domain of discussion, psycho-cognitive traits, the mode of language used (written vs. oral), and other factors.

Mutually intelligible languages or varieties of one language[edit]

Some linguists use mutual intelligibility as a primary criterion for determining whether two speech varieties represent the same or different languages.[3][4] In a similar vein, some claim that mutual intelligibility is, ideally at least, the primary criterion separating languages from dialects.[5]

The primary challenge to these positions is that speakers of closely related languages can often communicate with each other effectively if they choose to do so. In the case of transparently cognate languages recognized as distinct such as Spanish and Italian, mutual intelligibility is in principle and in practice not binary (simply yes or no), but occurs in varying degrees, subject to numerous variables specific to individual speakers in the context of the communication.

Les classifications peuvent également changer pour des raisons extérieures aux langues elles-mêmes. A titre d'exemple, dans le cas d'un continuum dialectal linéaire that shades gradually between varieties, where speakers near the center can understand the varieties at both ends with relative ease, but speakers at one end have difficulty understanding the speakers at the other end, the entire chain is often considered a single language. If the central varieties die out and only the varieties at both ends survive, they may then be reclassified as two languages, even though no actual language change has occurred during the time of the loss of the central varieties. In this case, too, however, while mutual intelligibility between speakers of the distant remnant languages may be greatly constrained, it is likely not at the zero level of completely unrelated languages.

In addition, political and social conventions often override considerations of mutual intelligibility in both scientific and non-scientific views. For example, the varieties of Chinese are often considered a single language even though there is usually no mutual intelligibility between geographically separated varieties. Another similar example would be varieties of Arabic. In contrast, there is often significant intelligibility between different Scandinavian languages, but as each of them has its own standard form, they are classified as separate languages.[6] There is also significant intelligibility between Thai languages of different regions of Thailand.

Many Turkic languages are also mutually intelligible to a higher or lower degree, but thorough empirical research is needed to establish the exact levels and patterns of mutual intelligibility between the languages of this linguistic family. The British Academy funded research project dedicated to examining mutual intelligibility between Karakalpak, Kazakh and Uzbek languages is currently under way at the University of Surrey.

Pour faire face au conflit dans des cas tels que l' arabe , le chinois et l' allemand , le terme Dachsprache (une «langue parapluie» sociolinguistique ) est parfois vu: le chinois et l'allemand sont des langues au sens sociolinguistique même si certains locuteurs ne peuvent se comprendre sans recourir à une forme standard ou de prestige .

Intelligibilité asymétrique [ modifier ]

Asymmetric intelligibility refers to two languages that are considered partially mutually intelligible, but where one group of speakers has more difficulty understanding the other language than the other way around. There can be various reasons for this. If, for example, one language is related to another but has simplified its grammar, the speakers of the original language may understand the simplified language, but less vice versa. For example, Dutch speakers tend to find it easier to understand Afrikaans than vice versa as a result of Afrikaans' simplified grammar.[7]

Les langues germaniques du nord parlées en Scandinavie forment un continuum de dialectes où deux dialectes les plus éloignés n'ont presque pas d'intelligibilité mutuelle. En tant que tel, le danois et le suédois parlés ont normalement une faible intelligibilité mutuelle [7], mais les Suédois de la région de l' Öresund (y compris Malmö et Helsingborg ), à travers un détroit de la capitale danoise Copenhague , comprennent un peu mieux le danois, en grande partie en raison de la proximité région de langue danoise. Alors que la Norvège était sous la domination danoise , la norme écrite bokmål du norvégien s'est développée à partir du dano-norvégien , une langue koinéqui a évolué parmi l'élite urbaine des villes norvégiennes au cours des dernières années de l'union. De plus, le norvégien a assimilé une quantité considérable de vocabulaire danois ainsi que des expressions danoises traditionnelles. [7] En conséquence, l'intelligibilité mutuelle parlée n'est pas réciproque. [7]

  • Zulu: Northern Ndebele (partially),[35] Xhosa (partially),[35] and Swazi (partially;[35] the first three are often considered to be dialects of a uniform Zunda language)

Spoken forms mainly[edit]

  • Hindi: Urdu. See the article on Hindustani language.
  • Akha, Honi, Hani (variety of different written scripts)[36]
  • Dungan: Mandarin, especially with Central Plains Mandarin[37] (partially; Dungan is usually written in Cyrillic and Mandarin usually in Chinese characters)
  • German: Yiddish[38] (because German is usually written in Latin script and Yiddish usually in the Hebrew alphabet). However, Yiddish's use of many borrowed words, chiefly from Hebrew and Slavic languages, makes it more difficult for a German speaker to understand spoken Yiddish than the reverse.
  • Polish: Ukrainian and Belarusian[39] (both partially; moreover, Belarusian and Ukrainian are written in Cyrillic, while Polish is written in Latin)
  • Spanish: Judeo-Spanish (depending on dialect and the number of non-Spanish loanwords used)[40][41][42][43][44]
  • Thai: Lao, Isaan, Southern Thai, Northern Thai, Shan and Lü[45] (both partially and asymmetrically, with every language having its own script except that Thai and Southern Thai use the same script.)

Written forms mainly[edit]

  • French: Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. French may have partial intelligibility with Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian in written form. This is possible due to the preservation of the writing from Middle French without any changes. However, French in its spoken form is not mutually intelligible with any of the three due to the great phonological changes that French has undergone in recent centuries.[46][47][48] According to phonological studies, French is the one that has distanced itself the most from Latin.[49] Also, the use of certain Germanic words used in the common lexicon can make it difficult for speakers of other Romance languages to understand. According to Ethnologue, French has 89% lexical similarity with Italian and 75% with Portuguese and Spanish.[50]
  • German: Dutch. Standard Dutch and Standard German show a limited degree of mutual intelligibility when written. One study concluded that when concerning written language, Dutch speakers could translate 50.2% of the provided German words correctly, while the German test subjects were able to translate 41.9% of the Dutch equivalents correctly. Another study showed that while Dutch speakers could correctly translate 71% of German cognates, they could only translate 26.6% of non-cognates correctly, suggesting a widely fluctuating intelligibility.[51] In terms of orthography, 22% of the vocabulary of Dutch and German is identical or near identical. The Levenshtein distance between written Dutch and German is 50.4% as opposed to 61.7% between English and Dutch.[52][53] The spoken languages are much more difficult to understand for both. Studies show Dutch speakers have slightly less difficulty in understanding German speakers than vice versa. It remains unclear whether this asymmetry has to do with prior knowledge of the language (Dutch people are more exposed to German than vice versa), better knowledge of another related language (English) or any other non-linguistic reasons.[52][54]
  • Icelandic: Faroese.[55]
  • Chechen: Ingush.

List of mutually intelligible varieties[edit]

Below is an incomplete list of fully and partially mutually intelligible varieties sometimes considered languages.

  • Dari: Persian and Tajik[56]
  • Karakalpak: Kazakh and Nogai[9]
  • Kazakh: Karakalpak,[9] Nogai, Altay and Kyrgyz[9]
  • Kinyarwanda: Kirundi[57]
  • Kirundi: Kinyarwanda[57]
  • Kyrgyz: Kazakh and Altay[9] and Karakalpak[9]
  • Persian: Dari and Tajik[56]
  • Samoan: Tokelauan and Tuvaluan (partially)
  • Tajik: Dari and Persian[56]
  • Tokelauan: Tuvaluan and Samoan (partially)[58]
  • Tuvaluan: Tokelauan and Samoan (partially)[58]

Dialects or registers of one language sometimes considered separate languages[edit]

  • Akan: Twi and Fante.[59]
  • Northeastern Neo-Aramaic (NENA) is a dialect continuum, with some dialects being mutually intelligible and others not.[60] While Zakho Jewish Neo-Aramaic and Zakho Christian Neo-Aramaic are mutually intelligible, especially on the eastern edge (in Iran), Jewish and Christian NENA varieties spoken in the same town are not mutually intelligible.[61][62]
  • Catalan: Valencian – the standard forms are structurally the same language and share the vast majority of their vocabulary, and hence highly mutually intelligible. They are considered separate languages only for political reasons.[63]
  • Hindustani: Hindi and Urdu[64] – the standard forms are separate registers of structurally the same language (called Hindustani or Hindi-Urdu), with Hindi written in Devanagari and Urdu mainly in a Perso-Arabic script, and with Hindi drawing its vocabulary mainly from Sanskrit and Urdu drawing it mainly from Persian and Arabic.
  • Malay: Indonesian (the standard regulated by Indonesia)[65] and Malaysian (the standard used in Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore). Both varieties are based on the same material basis and hence are generally mutually intelligible, despite the numerous lexical differences.[66] Certain linguistic sources also treat the two standards on equal standing as varieties of the same Malay language.[67] Malaysians tend to assert that Malaysian and Indonesian are merely different normative varieties of the same language, while Indonesians tend to treat them as separate, albeit closely related, languages.[68] However, vernacular or less formal varieties spoken between these two countries share limited intelligibility, evidenced by the fact that Malaysians have difficulties understanding Indonesian sinetron (soap opera) aired on their TV stations, and vice versa.[69]
  • Serbo-Croatian: Bosnian, Croatian, Montenegrin, and Serbian – the national varieties are structurally the same language, all constituting normative varieties of the Shtokavian dialect, and hence mutually intelligible,[4] spoken and written (if the Latin alphabet is used).[70][71] For political reasons, they are sometimes considered distinct languages.[72]
    • However, the non-standard vernacular dialects of Serbo-Croatian (Kajkavian, Chakavian and Torlakian) are considered by some linguists to be separate, albeit closely related languages to Shtokavian Serbo-Croatian, rather than Serbo-Croatian dialects, as Shtokavian has its own set of subdialects. Their mutual intelligibility varies greatly, both between the dialects themselves as well as with other languages. Kajkavian has higher mutual intelligibility with Slovene than the national varieties of Shtokavian, while Chakavian has a low mutual intelligibility with either, in part due to large number of loanwords from Venetian. Torlakian (considered a subdialect of Serbian Old Shtokavian by some) has a significant level of mutual intelligibility with Macedonian and Bulgarian.[73] All South Slavic languages in effect form a large dialect continuum of gradually mutually intelligible varieties depending on distance between the areas where they are spoken.
  • Romanian: "Moldovan" – the standard forms are structurally the same language, and hence mutually intelligible. They are considered separate languages only for political reasons and many Moldovans declare their language to be Romanian and their desire to unite with Romania.
  • Tagalog: Filipino[74] – the national language of the Philippines, Filipino, is based almost entirely on the Luzon dialects of Tagalog.

Dialect continua[edit]

Romance[edit]

Because of the difficulty of imposing boundaries on a continuum, various counts of the Romance languages are given; in The Linguasphere register of the world’s languages and speech communities David Dalby lists 23 based on mutual intelligibility:[75]

  • Iberian Romance: Portuguese, Galician, Mirandese, Astur-Leonese, Spanish, Aragonese;
  • Occitano-Romance: Catalan, Occitan;
  • Gallo-Romance: Langues d'oïl (including French), Franco-Provençal;
  • Rhaeto-Romance: Romansh, Ladin, Friulian;
  • Gallo-Italic: Piedmontese, Ligurian, Lombard, Emilian-Romagnol, Venetian;
  • Italo-Dalmatian: Corsican, Italian, Neapolitan, Sicilian, Istriot, Dalmatian (extinct);
  • Sardinian;
  • Eastern Romance: Daco-Romanian, Istro-Romanian, Aromanian, Megleno-Romanian.
