Title: Sociolinguistic Variation in Seventeenth-Century France
Subtitle: Methodology and Case Studies
Written By: Wendy Ayres-Bennett
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=052182088X
Description:

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.

*First ever study of sociolinguistic variation in seventeenth-century France

*Of interest both to specialists in linguistics and in French history

*Considers a broad range of sociolinguistic issues relating to language
variation in seventeenth-century France, such as gender, socio-economic
status, age, register and genre
