Claude Hagège

The French Language and the Centuries Publication date : September 1, 1987

Claude Hagege illustrates how the internal purity of the French language, less endangered than one might think, has been pushed aside in favor of its external promotion, less real than one might imagine. He increases our awareness of a major reality of the times. The French language is no longer the exclusive property of France; it has become an international affair.

Claude Hagege is a professor at the Collège de France.
