Long-range diachronic variation

Participants : Benoît Sagot, Laurent Romary, Éric Villemonte de La Clergerie, Clémentine Fourrier, Gaël Guibon, Mathilde Regnault, Kim Gerdes.

ALMAnaCH members have resumed their work on longer-range diachronic variation, in two distinct directions:

These two research directions will find a common ground now that we have begun to investigate, in the context of the Profiterole ANR project, how we can model the diachronic evolution of the lexicon from Old French to contemporary French. Moreover, our work on Basnage's 1701 Dictionnaire Universel, in the context of the BASNUM ANR project might draw some inspiration from the Profiterole project. But since 1700's French is much closer from contemporary French than Old French, another source of inspiration for BASNAGE might come from our work on sociolinguistic variation in contemporary French and more generally on our work on User-Generated Content (UCG).
