    Abstract: In his work on French, Henri Estienne initiates a new narrative on popular language in which everyday speech emerges as the faithful guardian of the intention of language’s first “authors.” The “conformities” he discovers between Greek, Latin and French are quite different in nature from the traditional means used to connect French words with their Latin or Greek etymons: these are structural and abstract resemblances, which suppose mental similarities dating far back to the constitution of language. This approach no longer relies on outward signs of origin—such as those still demonstrating etymological spelling—but on the “patterns” upon which the most usual and obvious expressions are moulded. By thus making everyday speech into a scientific object and a cult object, Estienne’s works laid an essential linguistic milestone of the classical period.
