D'après cette page https://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/pourir, "pourir" prenait autrefois un seul "r". Quelle est la raison pour laquelle aujourd'hui on l'écrit avec une consonne doublée?


1 Answer 1


Some additional information:

In Dictionnaire de l’Académie française it was spelled with double r up until the 5th edition, released 1798. 5th - 7th editions have it with single r, and then from 8th edition and onwards (1935 -) it was back to double r.
