This book provides an accessible syntax of French as well as a
grounding in the fundamental principles of syntactic theory,
unhindered by considerations of theory and cross-linguistic
comparisons. The aim is to describe modern French in breadth rather
than to analyse problems of theory in depth. Each chapter
progressively develops a system of notation that is consistent with
current approaches to generative grammar, but which allows the reader
to describe a wider variety of linguistic features of French than is
normally associated with model-based grammars.

After studying this book, learners should be able to move on to texts
both in generative theory and comparative studies of French and other
Romance languages. The book uses corpus-driven data and also
incorporates core ideas from systemic-functional grammar. An original
feature of the book is that each section has copious examples,
exercises and model answers.
