Q1. In 1635, Cardinal Richelieu offered a royal charter to a small group of men, who for several years had been meeting once a week to talk about books and to exchange views on literature. The original group was composed of only six or eight; the maximum membership was set at forty. It was named as ‘French Academy.’

  1. Write the THREE major aims of French Academy. (3 Marks)
  2. Keeping in mind those three aims, what is your opinion about the contribution of French Academy for French language? (7 Marks)

Note: Please go through topic 131 of the handouts for guidance.

Q2. Unlike Italian and French language academies, no academy was built for English language. The idea further died down with the publication of A Dictionary of the English Language, by Samuel Johnson, A.M. in 1755. Write a note on the role the above mentioned dictionary played for English language in the 18th century. Also, write down the ‘defects’ and ‘strengths’ of the dictionary.
