Henri Estienne, Deux dialogues du nouveau langage françois italianizé et autrement desguizé’ principalement entre les courtisans de ce temps (1578), éd. M. Smith. Genève : Slatkine, 1980, p. 119. 48 UNE LANGUE ORPHELINE d’abandon très généralement associée à la langue française, et comme inhérente à cet idiome, les grammairiens des années 1560-1580 donnent une traduction concrète et raisonnée : à la figure paternelle d’un roi protecteur du bien dire, à la Cour policée, à l’harmonie des ordres du langage ont succédé bou­ leversements et corruption.

La philologie lachmanienne, ce faisant, s’adjoint subreptice­ ment la notion romantique du génie ; amont incomparable l’auteur tranche, par l’unicité de sa conception et la qualité de sa langue, avec la diversité scribale, ignorante et sans dessein, qui pluralise l’œuvre, en banalise et appauvrit l’expression. L’éditeur contemple des épaves, et rêve. Le procédé le plus efficace pour réduire l’hétérogénéité dont s’entache l’ancienne langue est le fantasme d’une perfection révolue. Il fut une langue plus ancienne ; elle était irréprochable ; on pouvait la lire dans l’original.

Ainsi Geof­ froy Tory, dans son Champ Fleury (1529)5, admirable manuel de typographie renaissante, traite-t-il de la langue (par le biais de la prononciation des caractères d’imprimerie), de sa diver­ sité préjudiciable, de ses transformations (trop) rapides ; il appelle de ses vœux une action concertée, qui la « réduise en art », en la coulant dans le moule rigide d’une grammaire. Père de l’« aménagement linguistique » Tory est aussi, malgré lui, l’initiateur du thème de la décadence langagière : la cor­ ruption guette un idiome sans loi.
