Le changement linguistique au XVIIe s. : nouvelles approches scriptométriques

Abstract : Linguistic change in 17th c. France: new scriptometric approaches The end of the 17th c. remains a blind spot of the research on the spelling system, despite its importance for French at this period, during which a strict norm, still (more or less) in place, was created and imposed. Focusing on a practical rather than a theoretical approach, we propose to lay the foundation for a computational scriptometric study of early modern French and analyse the evolution of the spelling system over the 17th c. To do so, we measure and evaluate the distance between the early modern and the contemporary versions of the language, thanks to two automatic normalisers: one rulebased and another one neural-based.
