Main Article Content
The Covid-19 pandemic that hit France, and a large part of the world, highlighted the unbearable inequalities that exist within human society and lead us to question the republican motto of Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. Moreover, the speeches by the French government concerning the management of this pandemic further reveal, by the use of certain words or syntagms (confinement, social distancing, barrier gestures), an ideology which, by inference, is also in contradiction with this republican motto. This article aims to articulate the social and the linguistic contexts, and thus to show their ideological coherence.
