Ce que cache un nom : les ethnonymes slaves dans Le Nouveau Larousse illustré (1898-1904)

Abstract : This study of the various entries devoted to the « Slavs » in the French encyclopaedia Le Nouveau Larousse illustré (1898‑1904) confronts the reader with an incredible expansion of nouns: bohémien, tchèque, czèche, cassoube, kachoube, serbe, sorbe, sorabe, sorobe… These lexicographical articles carry some elements of historical, anthropological and linguistic science, which reveal collective representations filled with tensions between the desire of a racial and linguistic purity and the evidence of diversity. The act of giving a name, especially in the lexicographical context, is a complex and political act, as is shown with the example of Bielorussia, since it can both disclose or hide, give birth or deny identity.
