Godefroi de Buillon is an variation of folios 1 via 60 of Paris, Biblioth?que Nationale, fonds fran?ais 781, a prose model of the previous French campaign Cycle courting from the shut of the thirteenth century. It contains the Beatrix model of the Naissance du Chevalier au Cygne, Le Chevalier au Cygne, Les Enfances Godefroi, los angeles Chanson d?Antioche, Les Ch?tifs, and l. a. Chanson de J?rusalem. it truly is of substantial curiosity for the heritage of French literature since it is seemingly one of many earliest mises en prose, preceded probably basically by means of Robert de Boron?s prose Merlin. the writer explicitly refers to his objective: ?l?ai commenchie sans rime pour l?estore avoir plus abregiet et si me sanle que le rime est mout plaisans et mout bele mais mout est longue [I undertook it with no rhyme to have it shorter, for it kind of feels to me that rhyme is gorgeous yet very long]? (1:3-5). actually, he has rendered the unique verse into prose via precise tools. The Swan Knight branches of the Cycle are significantly abbreviated. Collation with the verse texts is very unlikely; person verses are just not often identifiable. nonetheless, the extra traditionally dependent branches are the made from a virtually verse for line d?rimage, typically by means of the straightforward removal of the second one hemistich, in addition to the removing of repetitive, descriptive, and affective passages.

Example text

Picard elements may be found in the scripta, or literary language, of northern France in an area bounded by Ile-de-France on the south, Normandy on the west, Flanders on the north, and Champagne on the east. Picard characteristics began to appear along with Francian in the literary language of northern France at the beginning of the thirteenth century, but never completely effaced the Francian established early in the twelfth century, and by the end of the fourteenth century, Francian had regained supremacy in the scripta.

This equalization of nasals has resulted in some orthographic variation: a) an for etymological en: tans (TEMPUS) 11: 42, serjans (SERVIENTE) 26: 28, sanle (on SIMULARE) 1: 4, tranloient (on TREMULARE) 35: 31, langage (on LINGUA) 75: 36; b) en for etymological an: mengier (MANDUCARE) 13: 24, Engletere 18: 36, Normendie 21: 37, Coustentinoble 31: 43. 40. Three infinitives of the Picard third conjugation have endings in -ir due to an attraction to the second congugation: veïr (VIDERE) 19: 40, caïr (CADERE) 20: 20 seïr (SEDERE) 65: 31.

The few discrepancies that do occur are usually in proper nouns or titles. Nine of the seventeen examples occur in one sentence. Instead of a breakdown in the declensional system, this seems to indicate that here, at least, the author did not notice the discrepancies arrising through the process of condensation.
