Abstract:

Drawing on a range of case studies, this systematic study demonstrates the
variety of language usage in seventeenth-century France, a time considered
to be the most "standardizing" in the history of French. Variation is
analyzed in terms of gender, age and socio-economic status, or by the
medium, register or genre used. The case studies present phonological,
morphological, syntactic and lexical issues, posing a range of
methodological questions for sociolinguists and historical linguists.
