From the days of De Guignes the higher departments of linguistic science fell for a time into disrepute in France; but a powerful impulse was given to the practical cultivation of Oriental languages by the diplomatic relations of that kingdom with Constantinople and the Levant. The official appointments connected with that service served to supply at once a stimulus to the study and an opportunity for its practice. Car-donne, Ruffin Legrand, Kieffer, Venture do Paradis, and Langles, were all either trained in that school, or devoted themselves to the study as a preparation for it.
