History of French
French is a Romance language (meaning that it is descended primarily from Vulgar Latin) that evolved out of the Gallo-Romance dialects spoken in northern France.The discussion of the history of a language is typically divided into ""external history"", describing the ethnic, political, social, technological, and other changes that affected the languages, and ""internal history"", describing the phonological and grammatical changes undergone by the language itself. For the history of phonological changes, see: Phonological history of French.
