"Daughters of the King" Between 1663 and 1673, 768 Filles du Roi or “King’s Daughters” emigrated to New France under the sponsorship of the French government as part of the overall strategy of strengthening the colony until it could stand on its own without economic and military dependence on France.

"Daughters of the King"

In 1663, about 2,500 colonists lived in New France, for the most part on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence between Québec and Montréal. With a constant threat from the Iroquois and the more populous English colonies on the Atlantic coast, the need to populate New France became a growing concern for Louis XIV and his colonial advisors. Through the early 1670s however, men of marriageable age far outnumbered the women of marriageable age. Unable to find a wife in Québec, a great number of male immigrants returned to France after their three-year term of service expired. Jean Talon, Bishop François de Laval and several settlers welcome the King’s Daughters upon their arrival. [Source: Peter J. HistoireVocabulaire_Latin_Gaulois_Francique.pdf.

Préface - Évolution du lexique

Quelques pessimistes parlent du français comme d’une langue qui aurait perdu sa créativité et qui ne vivrait plus que d’emprunts à l’anglais : le Nouveau Petit Robert leur apportera la preuve du contraire et montrera que les néologismes, toujours aussi nombreux, sont en outre formés selon de nouveaux modèles; l’époque actuelle invente d’autres procédures pour créer des mots. Mots composés Les mots savants sont traditionnellement formés avec des radicaux latins (octogénaire) ou grecs (stéthoscope), parfois hybrides (monocle), ces derniers autrefois critiqués par les puristes. Parfois même, on compose de cette façon avec deux mots français (placoplâtre, alcalinoterreux, riziculture). On voit comment, partie de règles très contraignantes, la composition des mots s’est libérée au profit de la néologie.
