Summary/Abstract: In this paper, we study, in a comparative approach, the notion of dialogism and the manner of its insertion in the text of Sahar Khalifé, Ghada El-Samman, Annie Ernaux and Hélène Cixous. The analysis of stylistic Arab and French works reveals how dialogism enters the textual space, through language use, language that is constantly plagued otherness. Thereby manifests a spring of writing that brings the dialogue with others to build a "story", a scriptural language activity and operating in the manner of "grafting" of co-locating the text in a between.
