This volume brings together a number of previously published papers, which reflect a middle-of-the-road approach in Linguistic Analysis. The first part contains articles dealing with major grammatical techniques and strategies in Arabic dialects: articles on syllabication, stress and intonation in an urban Arabic dialect as well as on lexical borrowing. The second part deals with linguistic substitution as verbal dynamism, and with riddles and riddling in an Algerian context. Ce volume est un ensemble des articles deja publies dans le domaine de l'analyse linguistique. La methodologie suivie est structural-fonctionnaliste. La premiere partie contient deux articles traitant de sujets de dialectologie arabe, entre autres l'utilisation des marqueurs de la possession dans des dialectes arabes du Maghreb et de la Peninsule Arabique, les diverses structures syllabiques, l'accent et les contours d'intonation dans un dialecte arabe urbain. La deuxieme partie s'occupe des enigmes en contexte algerien et deux autres articles sur la suppleance linguistique en arabe dialectal.
