David DeGooyer: French Orthography
David DeGooyer grew up in the Pacific Northwest and also lived in downstate Illinois for many years. He plans to double-major in French and Francophone Studies & Communication at University of Illinois at Chicago.
Abstract: The objective was to discover what changes in French orthography led to the eventual silencing of S sounds in many French words, particularly those which eventually included the use of the circumflex as a replacement for missing letters in some instances. Specific examples were studied with the intent to discover how and when the change in pronunciation occurred and why that was arbitrarily reflected in the spelling of the words in question.
