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 also incorporates core ideas from
phraseology studies and systemic-functional grammar. An original
feature of the book is that each section has copious examples,
exercises and model answers.
