Abstract. This article reveals the evolution of the sentence members order (subject, predicate, and object) in the French language. Particular attention is paid to the language prerequisites that affected certain changes in syntax. The word order was replaced by sufficiently large variety beginning from sentence components sequence in the Old French language to fixed order word, which became the norm in the classical period. The cases of inversion in some circumstances date back to the Old French language status.
Key words and phrases: , , , , historical syntax, word order, inversion, unexpressedness of subject.
