About the French Language

For the period about around 1300, some linguists refer to the oïl languages collectively as Old French (ancien français). The earliest extant text in French is the Oaths of Strasbourg from 842; Old French became a literary code with all the chansons de geste that told stories of the paladins of Charlemagne and the heroes of the Crusades.

By the Ordinance of Villers-Cotterêts in 1539 King Francis I created French the official code of management and court proceedings in France, ousting the Latin that had been chosen before then. With the imposition of the standardised chancery dialect and the reduction of the declension program, the dialect is called Middle French (moyen français). The initially grammatical description of French, the Tretté de la Grammaire française by Louis Maigret, was published in 1550. Many of the 700 words of contemporary French that originate from Italian were introduced in this period, including many denoting creative concepts (situation, piano), deluxe goods, and food.

Following a period of unification, regulation and purification, the French of the 17th to the 18th decades is often called Classical French (français classique), although several linguists merely refer to French code within the 17th century to now as Modern French (français moderne).

The foundation of the Académie française (French Academy) in 1634 by Cardinal Richelieu created an official body whose objective has been the purification and preservation of the French code. This group of 40 members is termed as the Immortals, not, as some erroneously believe, because they are selected to serve for the extent of their lives (which they are), but as a result of the inscription engraved found on the official seal provided to them by their founder Richelieu—"À l'immortalité" ("to the Immortality (of the French language)"). The foundation nevertheless exists and contributes to the policing of the code and the adaptation of foreign words and expressions. Some recent modifications include the change from software to logiciel, packet-boat to paquebot, and riding-coat to redingote. The word ordinateur for computer was but not built by the Académie, but by a linguist appointed by IBM

From the 17th to the 19th decades, France was the leading energy of Europe; because of this, together with all the influence of the Enlightenment, French was the lingua franca of educated Europe, incredibly with regards to the arts, literature, and diplomacy; monarchs like Frederick II of Prussia and Catherine the Great of Russia might both speak and write in French. During the 17th and 18th decades, the French code established itself forever in the Americas. There is an educational debate about how fluent in French were the colonists of New France. While a minority of colonists (largely women) were within the area of Paris (around 20% of all colonists), nearly all of them came from northern and western areas of France where French wasn't the main code natively spoken by its inhabitants. It is not clearly recognized, yet, how various among those colonists understood French as a 2nd code, and how numerous among them – who, in overwhelming majority, natively talked an oïl code – might know, and be understood by, those who speak French because of interlinguistic similarity. In any case, a linguistic unification of all groups from France occurred (either in France, found on the ships, or in "Canada") such that, according to numerous sources, the then "Canadiens" were all talking French natively by the end of the 17th century, perfectly before the unification was complete in France. Today, French is the code of about 10 million persons (not counting French-based creoles) in the Americas.

Through the Académie, public knowledge, decades of official control and the character of media, a unified official French code has been forged, but there remains a fantastic deal of variety now in terms of territorial accents and words. For some critics, the "best" pronunciation of the French code is considered to become the 1 employed in Touraine (around Tours and the Loire River valley), but such value judgments are fraught with difficulties, and with all the ever improving reduction of lifelong attachments to a certain area and the growing value of the nationwide media, the future of certain "regional" accents is usually difficult to predict. The French nation-state, which appeared after the 1789 French Revolution and Napoleon's empire, unified the French individuals in specific through the consolidation of the utilization of the French code. Hence, according to historian Eric Hobsbawm, "the French code has been important to the concept of 'France', although in 1789 50% of the French persons didn't speak it at all, and just 12 to 13% talked it 'fairly' - in actual fact, even in oïl code zones, from a central area, it wasn't normally spoken except in cities, and, even there, not usually in the faubourgs. In the North as in the South of France, virtually nobody talked French." Hobsbawm highlighted the part of conscription, invented by Napoleon, and of the 1880s public training regulations, which enabled to blend the different groups of France into a nationalist mold which created the French citizen and his consciousness of membership to a well-known country, while the different "patois" were slowly eradicated.
