Crysmann on Apparent Reversal in Old French Declension

November 19 & 20, Berthold Crysmann (Paris) visited Frankfurt to give two talks on his joint work with Alain Kihm on Apparent reversal in Old French declension. Berthold and Alain argue that even though the Old French declension looks like a case of reversal, it should better be described in terms of generalizations over various declension classes.
