Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The word order was a much debated topic in French culture, starting from the Port-Royal grammar of 1660 and then for over a century, with the dispute about the existence or not of a "natural" order in the succession of words within the sentence. A significant moment in this tradition of study is, in the nineteenth century, the work of H. Weil. The author is considered by many scholars to be the 'founder' of the order of word theory. The second part of the essay is dedicated to Weil's thought. Finally, in the third part we analyze the order of the words of the French language in the perspective of the functional articulation of the sentence in theme and rows.
