Analysis of the Haiku structure

strašna vrućina -
u susjede procvao
svekrvin jezik

a very hot day -
Mother-in-law's tongue in bloom
by my neighbor

Journée très chaude -
la langue de la belle-mère en fleur
chez mon voisin

Tout en finesse, ce haïku à plusieurs sens de lecture. Deux discours parallèles partageant les mêmes mots, chaue mot à double sens. Un miracle que cela survive aux deux traductions. Il faut croire que les belle-mères ont la vie dure...

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* jeu_mots - Puns.
A pun, a double meaning word without being a pivot. This is often an occasion for a multi-level reading discourse with double meaning words. This device is linked to humour, to the comic of the situation.

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects

At the level: 2-prof - Deep level
Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.

Description level: 5-vecu - Personal(Experienced, psycho, acquired...)

* avis - Opinion given by the author.
The author tells his/her views or an explanation. The speech is not neutral at the first level of reading/writing. This is not a haiku where the author explains to the reader what he or she should understand, usually completed and of no interest. Here, the author gives an indication that is part of the elements of the discourse in addition to the others and that is not a redundancy (redundancy, precision, explanation).

Effects: liavec - Binding to the reader's experience.

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

Description level: 3-aut - Author's role
