Qualité, notion ou concept : rappel historique

The notion of quality, which occurs from the very beginning of grammatical thought, has evolved over the centuries without ever achieving stability. The purpose of this article is to study seven types of notions associated with the term of “quality”, as illustrated through a selection of quotations from pre-19th century grammarians. We will endeavour to define these notions and reflect upon their grammatical status in the context within which they developed.
