Le jacassin. Nouveau traité des idées recues, folies bourgeoises et automatismes.

£7.99

Product description

Adaptant à son époque le projet de Flaubert, Pierre Daninos dresse un nouvel inventaire des idées reçues, folies bourgeoises et automatismes : ces mots, formules, onomatopées qui sont le costume d'une pensée si souvent vouée à la confection et ponctuent la conversation pour la relancer vers d'autres clichés. « Le jacassin », ce sont les mots que nous entendons tous les jours (et que nous prononçons nous-mêmes, car, à l'instar de M. Jourdain, nous faisons tous du jacassin sans le savoir) et qui, de la naissance à la mort, avec le cortège des lieux communs, nous emportent comme un torrent.

Adapting Flaubert's project to his time, Pierre Daninos draws up a new inventory of accepted ideas, bourgeois follies and automatisms. These words, "The jacassin", these are the words we hear every day. "The Jacassin" begins with a feast of clichés:

A fascinating dictionary of words and phrases interpreted by Daninos in his own way. This will be of great interest to any lover of or student of the French Language. The book is in very good condition.
