This work studies historically the preposition de, tracing the development of three important constructions with de from Latin to Old French. It also attempts to draw conclusions from the historical facts in accordance with modern synchronic linguistics, the aim being to promote the integration of synchronic and diachronic linguistics, particularly in the field of syntax.
