Singer Arno will make his debut at Petit Larousse in 2022

If Greta Thunberg, Matt Damon, Guillaume Musso or Megan Rapinoe, in particular, have already obtained their place in the Petit Larousse illustrated in 2021, forty other personalities will join them in 2022, announces Le Figaro.

Indeed, as every year, the best-selling dictionary of the Francophonie will be updated again next year, adding new words, expressions and personalities to its pages. And among the artists, writers, philosophers, sportsmen, scientists, etc. whose name will be printed in the Petit Larousse 2022, we find that of the Belgian singer Arno. He will now rub shoulders with Lucas Belvaux, filmmaker and actor from our country, the only Belgian personality entered in the dictionary last year.

John Travolta, South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho, French skier Alexis Pinturault or even couturier Thierry Mugler, are also part of the Larousse selection for 2022.

Six selection criteria

A selection which is obviously based on strict criteria, which are six in number for the personalities, explained Larousse to Le Figaro:

– the notoriety of the person and his work in France and in the French-speaking area

– the permanence of this notoriety, its legitimacy and its recognition with the public, critics and peers

– the universality of the work

– the accessibility of the content of this work and its availability

– consistency with the values ​​of Petit Larousse, those of excellence, the promotion of French culture
