Mer du Nord

un peu de sel

Commentaire.

Autre haïku culturel. Qui n'est pas Belge ou du Pas de Calais ne peut comprendre toutes les images qui viennent à l'esprit avec ces quelques mots. Il est très efficace mais ne peut ni voyager, ni être traduit. Du point de vue technique, il utilise une opposition rare entre deux goûts. Un peu la version Mer du Nord du sucré-salé. Il se termine par le goût piquant du sel avec peut-être là, l'archetype du PointActif.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm086 -

Used techniques :

* culturel - Use of external cultural reference.
The haiku is based on an external cultural element, well known by the reader. There is a sharing of an environment (place, situation...) or cultural element (music, painting...) that will seek memories or sensations in the memory and experience of the reader. This device saves a lot of space, nothing else is needed, the effect is achieved by the reader's contribution.

* opposition - Images in opposition.
Images with a group of opposite senses. The images are in opposition to each other. However, the opposite semes are grouped into dialectics. A dialectic is composed of opposite semes, like the two sides, poles of the same grade.

For example:
- Top and Bottom.
- Inside and Outside
- Big and Tiny

* juxtaposition - Juxtaposition.
Use of images placed side by side to create an effect superior to that of each separate image. It is not a resonance effect as in similarity but rather a composition effect as in a painting or still life.

As the juxtaposed images have no or very few common semes, they compose a new global image in relation to its components.

Archetypes and dialectics

* D_ChaudFroid - Warm <> Cold.

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.
