Analysis of the Haiku structure

after our quarrel
the frog resumes
his croaking

après notre querelle
la grenouille recommence
son coassement

Commentaire.

Haïku notant une transition. L'auteure a perçu la modification de l'environnement malgré le poids de la situation. Peut-être et même sûrement, y a-t-il une allusion moqueuse liant le coassement avec les paroles du partenaire... Donc deux lectures possibles de ce haïku. Cette technique permet d'accroître l'activité d'un discours si à l'étroit dans la forme.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :


* soudain - Sudden modification.
The haiku describes a sudden, sometimes unexpected event. He grabs something that just happened. It appears as a transition between two states: before and after.

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects


At the level: 1-surf - Surface level
Discourse, surface structures, content, subject, style.

Description level: 2-strs - Organization, surface structures


* atmosphere - Atmosphere.
Something emerges from all the elements that constitute haiku: a climate, an atmosphere. The author does not state this explicitly. It is the reader who reconstructs it from his or her own experience.

This is especially true in three-segment haiku, also called "grocery list". But this effect can also be achieved in other ways.

The mention of feelings related to the weather and taste adds a multisensory dimension to the atmosphere created.

Effects: liasen - Binding with sensorial feelings.

Discourse, surface structures, content, subject, style.

Description level: 3-suj - Subject, content


* S1 - Folded sentence.
Haiku in one folded sentence.

Effects: decod - Decoding the structure.
Affects the time required to understand the speech by the time required to decode the structure. Groups the elements by physical and temporal caesuras.

At the level: 0-form - Formal level
Formal appearance, written forms.

Description level: 1-pres - Formal representation
