Toile versus dictionnaires : Les nominalisations du français en-age et en-ment

Abstract : Web vs dictionaries. French nominalizations in-age and in-ment. This article addresses French suffixations in-age and-ment that form nominalizations. Our aim is to test the hypotheses about these two rules, based on occurrences collected from the Web and not found in contemporary dictionaries. Through a wide-scale study, we show that the differences between the two rules are not as obvious as expected, and that this data pleads for a perspective in which both suffixes follow a single word formation rule.
