Historical Linguistics, Language Change and the History of French.
Journal of French Language Studies, v4 n1 p75-97 Mar 1994
It is proposed that the study of the history of the French language would be enhanced by combining the methodology of linguistics with that of history proper, examining institutional, cultural, and social history as part of the evolution of a language. Distinctions between variation, innovation, shift, and change are examined. (Author/MSE)
