Ce que disent leurs phrases

Abstract : A study of sentence lengths in French 17e century theatre (Corneille, Mairet, Molière, Quinault, Racine). The mid-values (mean, mode, median and medial) and the frequency function highlight some characteristics of each author and the constraints imposed by alexandrine verses and rules of the theatre. Four clusters of sentences are highlighted according to their lengths and their aims: to challenge, to converse, to expound even to soliloquize.
