Abstract

Chantai WIONET, « Qui, que, quoi in French dictionaries at the turn of the 18th century ». The objective of this article is to offer a presentation of the articles QUI, QUE and QUOI in the Dictionnaire françois of Richelet (1680), the Dictionnaire Universel of Antoine Furetière (1690), and the Dictionnaire de l'Académie françoise (1694). In the second part of the paper, the author describes some grammatical lexical units (PARTICULE, PRONOM, POSSESSIF, RELATIF, etc.). This part focuses on the status of grammatical units in the dictionaries, and shows how the lexicographers' work is part of the "grammatisation" of the French language.
