Abstract (English)

Regarding the emergence of parenthetical verbs, three possible sources have been proposed in the literature: superordinate clauses, subordinate clauses, and juxtaposed sentences. This contribution analyses their validity with respect to parenthetical verbs derived from croire 'believe', cuidier 'believe', espérer 'hope', penser 'think' and sembler 'seem' in Old, Middle and Renaissance French texts composed between the 9th and the 16th century. According to the results of the analysis, the least probable source for modern parentheticals are subordinate clauses, followed by superordinate clauses as a likelier origin, while juxtaposed sentences seem to offer the most plausible explanation.
