Rsum / Abstract
L'A. tente de montrer que dans la grammaire bangla (ou bengali) crite par Chattopadhyay (1939), diffrents types de
formations nonciatives et de ruptures pistmologiques peuvent tre retrouves : traduction de grammaires gnrales
classiques crites par les anglais, rcurrence de la grammaire du sanskrit, influence de la philosophie comparative et
analyse linguistique du bangla pour construire une grammaire autonome. En analysant quelques unes des ruptures, des
rcurrences et des mlanges apparaissant dans la reprsentation de chaque sujet grammatical, il souligne l'influence de
facteurs idologiques non linguistiques, comme le colonialisme et le nationalisme, dans la construction de cette grammaire

Abstract: In this paper, the author tries to analyze the discourse of one particular school-text book of prescriptive
Bangla Grammar (Suniti kumar Chattopadhyays Bhasaa prakaas Bangaalaa vyaakaarana, 1939) in
relation to the non-discursive formation of ideological state apparatuses (viz. school, family, colonial
nation statist order of things). According to the author the non-discursive practice determines the
discourse of prescriptive grammar, which is in fact, a meta-speaking on a particular appropriated,
approximated and a selected standardized variety of speaking and writing grammar, in turn, was also
contributing in the construction of the boundary of the linguistic statist imagiNATION. The categories or
order of things as represented in the grammar reflect the 'real (colonial)state' of affairs. In the discursive
formation of this particular text-book of grammar, different epistemes from different space-time were
represented sometimes with epistemological thresholds (e.g. the concept of grammar and vyaakaarana
altogether two different epistemic constructs. Their equivalence was overdetermined) and sometimes
without such ruptures. In the second case, the author introduces the concept of 'epistemological
amalgamation' (e.g., the order of things of Comaparative Philology,Linguistics, Sanskrit vyakarana, Latin
and English Grammar were sometimes amalgamated without apparently visiblble epistemological
thresholods) which at a time represents so called colonial mimicry and post-colonial hybridity. The
paper, on the other hand, is mimicry of Foucauldian discourse analysis with some due modifications as
expected in the post-colonial hybrid academic space.
