Grand Corpus des dictionnaires [9e-20e s.]

The Grand Corpus des dictionniares gathers the 24 most important dictionaries on French language, in total about 200,000 pages (2,500 signs per page), 900,000 entries and definitions. It is the greatest collection today available on the subject.

This set of dictionaries concerns vocabulary of usage and specialized terms. It is very useful for students, faculty, and searchers from all fields of interests and studies (literature, history, medieval studies, and also geography, philosophy, sociology and law, sciences, for example).

The Grand Corpus has been realized and built according to several editorial principles that allow:

  • to search on a single dictionary, on several or on the whole set of dictionaries
  • to search from fields of search such as:entries, grammatical categories, etymologies to search through the signs of domain (literature, history, medicine, etc.)
  • to search through the signs of usage (elevated language, familiar language, ancient words, archaic words, words having dropped out of use, etc.)
  • to search on quotes and citations (the Grand Corpus contains about 1,000,000 citations)
  • access to many different indices, that can be crossed and cumulated to reach a real complexity of search: full text index, index on domain, theme, author, etymology, etc.

  • Frédéric Godefroy, Dictionnaire de l'ancienne langue française et de tous ses dialectes du 9e au 15e siècle
