Les bases de données lexicales : pourquoi et comment les utiliser en logopédie ? Par Marie-Anne Schelstraete & Christelle Maillart
Notre système de traitement de l'information - le système cognitif - est, de manière générale, très sensible à la fréquence des stimuli qu'il traite, ce que l'on peut interpréter comme une forme d'adaptation particulièrement adéquate à un environnement variable. Dans tous les domaines de la psychologie cognitive, des recherches montrent que des stimuli fréquents, qui ont déjà été souvent rencontrés, sont traités plus rapidement et avec une plus grande exactitude que des stimuli plus rares.

Words in English by Suzanne Kemmer (Rice University)
[from the website] This website is a resource for those who want to learn more about this fascinating language [i.e., English] – its history as a language, the origins of its words, and its current modern characteristics.

The Great Vowel Shift
[from the website] This site is designed for my students--undergraduates with limited linguistic knowledge who are being introduced to the Great Vowel Shift. There are topics I do not discuss in this site because they are too basic, too complicated, or too controversial for this audience.

The History of English Phonemes
[from the website] This Website is designed to help students of the English language trace the development of the phonemes of English from the Old English period into Present-Day English. The information contained in the site is available in any good textbook on the history of the language, but printed texts normally present the information in a linear fashion corresponding to the chronological development of English. The value of the Website is the hypertextual treatment of the information, which is meant to keep students from having to spend a great deal of time leafing through textbooks.

Wordorigins.org
[from the website] This site is devoted to the origins of words and phrases, or as a linguist would put it, to etymology. Etymology is the study of word origins. (It is not the study of insects; that is entomology.) Where words come from is a fascinating subject, full of folklore and historical lessons. Often, popular tales of a word's origin arise. Sometimes these are true; more often they are not. While it often seems disappointing when a neat little tale turns out to be untrue, almost invariably the true origin is just as interesting.

Chantez-vous français?
[Copie du site web] "Ce n'est pas une histoire du chant. Ce n'est pas non plus une histoire du français. C'est une histoire du français chanté. Dès l'origine, le chant constitue une forme de discours à part entière, qui obéit à ses règles propres. L'histoire de ces règles, qui définissent le champ de la déclamation, est ici retracée. Touchant à plusieurs disciplines, cette étude s'adresse en tout premier aux chanteurs pratiquant la musique ancienne, qui peinent à trouver, dans les traités spécialisés, des réponses à leurs questions. Peut-être intéressera-t-elle aussi quelques linguistes que le chant et la musique ne laissent pas indifférents et, qui sait, d'autres esprits curieux."
