English abstract: Orality

« Orality »: Direct transmission as in « word-of-mouth ». According to Michel Lebreton, who wrote the text for Paalabres:
« Orality questions our relationship to writing and to the model to be reproduced. There is orality in all societies: it is the degree of presence and usage of writing which introduces some differences between on the one hand reproduction of models and analytical discourses, and on the other hand variability at the time of production and analogical discourses ».
