L'intercompréhension des langues romanes comme vecteur de développement géopolitique durable

Abstract : This article begins by observing that, despite their appearance of diversity, Romance languages form a hybrid linguistic and cultural unity on the basis of which it is possible to conceive of a large project of sustainable geopolitical development; this project would be equal in magnitude to the world of those who speak and appreciate these languages. One must then ask which mode or modes of intercommunication could help foster such a project. After assessing various forms of intercommunication used in the international activities of several sectors of society, the author observes that, while international English has fully pervaded some sectors, this is less the case in other sectors. The latter could benefit from choosing (if they have not done so already) a strategy focused on the operative synergy of the many modes of Latin intercommunication, at the heart of which is found Romance language intercomprehension. Training in this intercomprehension could serve as a vector that reveals one’s belonging to the community of those who speak and appreciate Romance languages; on that basis, mutual comprehension could become a vector for facilitating exchange, networking and movement as well as for economic growth.
