This is one of the topics of the day: the orthographic reform of 1990 approved by the French Academy will be applied in schools in the coming year. But what does change mean?

25 years later, therefore, 2,400 common words will be changed. A revolution that will not see Maurice Druon, of the French Academy, who had chaired the working group leading this reform but died in 2009. He said at the time that it “was not intended to upheaval language, which would be unfortunate and totally against-productive;. but (the reform) eliminates the main challenges that are without justification, and normalize the most abnormalities what other challenges remain, this is not .. But no doubt a simple language or oversimplified is a poor language (our language) is rich, and constantly enriched, and his wealth is reflected in its spelling “

. a living language that evolves through a reform in which the Independent has plunged to propose the list of qualified 275 words and anomalies that have changed. And some are tasty. In addition to the water lilies that we write lilies, onions lose their “i”, there is also the pesetas …. except that their usefulness is very limited since the euro replaced the peseta in 2001 … In remaining on loans to the Spanish language, as we say now: paélia for paella

we also say “interpellate”, sitting, weekend and many more! things to find in the link below …

the caret in the viewfinder

in addition to words, several rules have also been changed (hyphens, grave accent …) but the fact that debate is changing the caret. But attention between what is in the reform and that some of them relate, there are some offsets. Indeed, the circumflex is deleted on the “i” and the “u” … with a few exceptions … (the famous exception to the rule!).

So the caret is held on the “u” and “i” in the conjugation when marking a termination ( we saw. ..) and when it makes a useful sense of distinction on the following words:. due, fast, mature, secure .. what does not change, it is the verb Grow and proper names. Nimes and Nimes and keep their circumflex accents.

In order not to miss anything of this reform, you can dive in, as by following this link. Happy reading.
