Frankoromanistentag Aachen, 26-29 september 2002

Title of the section: Die "innovations lexicales" in der franzsischen
Renaissance / Lexical novelties in French Renaissance

The section is organized by Dr. Uwe Dietzel and Cordula Neis (both from
the University of Potsdam).


Summary

Comparing the chronology of Renaissance periods in the different
Romance countries, you will realize that France in this respect did
not have a leading role: Italy e.g. had already to a large extent
completed the spiritual revival of antique traditions before this
process even began in France. This becomes obvious when we consider
the development of literature and the tendencies to introduce a
vernacular language besides Latin and to establish as "worthy of being
used in literature". From a linguistic point of view it would be
interesting to find out, on the one hand, whether, during this period,
antique classical vocabulary (above all Latinisms and Graecisms) was
directly taken over into the French language or whether it was
adapted; on the other hand it would be interesting to explore to what
extent the Renaissance in other Romance countries (above all Italy
again) has left its traces in the vocabulary of French.

The section proposed is to offer a platform to primarily lexicological
papers as well as to papers dealing with comparative aspects of
linguistics and those concentrating on linguistic history.
