Abstract
The goal of this seminar is to reconstruct the most important and fruitful theoretical nuclei of Charles Bally. A pupil of Ferdinand de Saussure, Bally develops Saussurian theories on words in an original way, focusing his interests on the subjective imprint of language. Bally tackles the subject of subjectivity by placing it at the point of intersection of different antinomies (that between intellectual language and affective language, between language learned and transmitted, between speaking and listening subject, etc.), following the compass of the intricate relationship between individual and dimension collective.
Bally also, starting from the Saussurian concepts of langue and parole, renews the traditional stylistics by placing himself as the initiator of linguistic stylistics, where the spoken language (“essentially subjective, concrete and affective”) holds a central place.
