Les pronoms de l'anglais : approche diachronique

Abstract : The aim of this article is to give an account of the evolution of pronouns from the Old English period to the Renaissance. It starts with a description of the Old English system (personal, demonstrative, interrogative and relative pronouns) and examines the changes occurring in the Middle English and Elizabethan periods with the emergence of possessive pronouns stemming from the Genitive case of the personal pronouns and the increasing use of the interrogative pronouns as relatives. The article thus studies the pronouns from phonetic, morphological, semantic and syntactic points of view.
