Corpus of French Renaissance grammars


The first French grammars are characterised by their great depth and extreme diversity. The genre was not narrowly defined and corresponded to a variety of practices: not only description of the French language, but also teaching to foreigners keen to learn a new idiom and culture which were penetrating all European countries. The books are of very variable length, from a few manuscript pages to 1,000 printed pages. The language in which they are written also varies: French, of course, but also English, German and very often Latin. For the first time, an electronic corpus allows the scholar to carry out sophisticated and multiple researches in books hitherto much neglected.
To facilitate systematic research, the Corpus des grammaires de la Renaissance (Corpus of French Renaissance Grammars) provides the user with a great number of research tools: full-text research, thesaurus of authors (5 categories) and of titles (3 categories), thesaurus of examples and quotations. The user can thus build up his/her own corpus, extract and export results, etc.
