Product Description

From the Back Cover

Pourquoi et depuis quand notre orthographe est©elle si compliquée ? Combien de mots gaulois subsistent dans nos dictionnaires ? Doit©on redouter le franglais et le langage de la pub ? Qu'est©ce qu'un patois, un dialecte, un parler régional ? Comment parle©t©on le français à Montréal, à Dakar, à Pointe©à©Pitre ? Faut©il créer des féminins à " professeur " ou " ingénieur " ? A ces questions et à mille autres, on trouvera la réponse dans ce passionnant voyage au coeur de la langue française, à consulter ou à lire d'une traite. Spécialiste de linguistique, Henriette Walter sait écouter les mots de tous les jours et de partout. Elle n'ignore rien de ce qui relie une langue à l'histoire, à la société, à la géographie. Et surtout elle sait s'adresser à tous pour conter le roman - prodigieusement vivant - du français. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is written in French, and tells the story of the changes in the French language throughout history. It is very well written, easy to figure out, entertaining and eye opening. Hard to put down!
