English term or phrase: SEXUS THEORY
Domaine : linguistique

Much of the interest in grammatical gender prior to the last two or three decades lay in seeking a plausible explanation for its origin and its continued existence in natural language. There are, in brief, two theoretical approaches to the diachronic evolution of the gender category and its function in specific language families. One rests on semantic theories (the natural gender/SEXUS THEORY) and the other embraces various theories concerned with the internal laws of language.

Quelle est la deuxième approche théorique?
Daniel
deuxième approche
Explanation:
La deuxième approche n'est pas naturelle ou sémantique (fondée sur le sexe) mais souvent historique. Les noms français conservant le genre des nomns latins dont ils sont issus. Mais il y a bien d'autres hypothèses qui ne sont que des hypothèses.
