Example text

A new event at a Chennevières sports festival in May 1986 was billed as baby basketball (or, alternately, as baby basket). Mareschal (1988:74) supplies an attestation of a small kitchen appliance named Babymoulinette. Consulting Galliot (1955:222) makes it apparent that the diminutive use of baby in advertising goes back at least to the twenties, although, significantly, the earlier attesta­ tions are not always preposed: Pathe-Baby (the smallest camera manufac­ tured by Pathé, 1920's), Babytex (the smallest can of oil sold by Texaco, no date), Lago-Baby (small car manufactured by Talbot, no date).

A. pour ses repas. (L'Express 11-19-82:35) Comencini a guéri son compatriote Pinocchio du vilain enchante­ ment made in Hollywood dont il avait été victime. (Temps de Vivre 02-84:6) Technologie de pointe «made in France». La Société de Mécanique Magnétique, une affaire qui tourne [heading] (Libération 09-20-86:20) Polygamie made in France [heading] (Blandine Grosjean, L'Evénement 05-10-90:90) Made in France, d'accord, faisons déjà ce qui dépend de nous. (text of political poster for the French Communist Party, 11-82) La mode made in tricot, Timwear, Paris (text of poster ad for knits, Paris, 10-83) Other attestations from advertising include Made in monde (inscribed on jogging sweats, spring 1987) and Made in Europe (part of a poster ad for the Salon international de l'habillement masculin, St-Maur-des-Fossés, 02-87).

A variant of this expression was re-borrowed in the Americanized substantival form used as a musical term: blues (1918, Höfler 1982). The adjectival con­ struction reappeared in the integral borrowing blue-jean(s) (1949, Höfler 1982, but Datations et documents lexicographiques, Vol. 18, includes a 1941 citation). However, this has been reduced to the form jean(s) in current us­ age (sometimes jean's in advertising). Among original editions of modern dictionaries of Anglicisms, only the Dictionnaire de franglais (1980:23) lists the financial term blue chip.
