Homme, personne, être humain : trois noms d’humains généraux en français et en bulgare

Abstract : The aim of this contrastive study that deals with human general nouns (HGN) in French and in Bulgarian is double: first, in connection with Cappeau & Schnedecker’s work on French HGN (in this volume), we characterize for the first time the available Bulgarian HGNs under their morphosyntactic features. Second, using data from parallel corpora, we reveal some clear tendencies in the translation of three French HGNs (homme ‘man’, personne ‘person’ and être humain ‘human being’) that depend on the lexical/grammatical properties of the target language (for example, personne can be translated by “chovek” (man, human), “litze” (person, individual) or by “niakoi” (someone)).
