Abstract : This paper investigates the effects of the text form (prose vs. verse) on diachronic grammatical changes in Medieval French using parsed treebanks and (1 mln words annotated with Penn scheme). Despite the common intuition that the prose is somehow more "advanced" than the verse contemporary to it with respect to grammatical changes, in the absence of quantificational evaluations, the magnitude of the difference has remained unknown.
