Abstract:

"The Routledge Dictionary of Cultural References in Modern French" reveals
the hidden cultural dimension of contemporary French, as used in the press,
going beyond the limited and purely lexical approach of traditional
bilingual dictionaries.

Even foreign learners of French who possess a good level of French often
have difficulty in fully understanding French articles, not because of any
linguistic shortcomings on their part but because of their inadequate
knowledge of the cultural references.

This cultural dictionary of French provides the reader with clear and
concise explanations of the crucial cultural dimension behind the most
frequently used words and phrases found in the contemporary French press.
This vital background information, gathered here in this innovative and
entertaining dictionary, will allow readers to go beyond a superficial
understanding of the French press and the French language in general, to
see the hidden yet implied cultural significance that is so transparent to
the native speaker.

Key features:

- a broad range of cultural references from the historical and literary to
the popular and classical, with an in-depth analysis of punning mechanisms.
- over 3,000 cultural references explained
- a three-level indicator of frequency
- over 600 questions to test knowledge before and after reading.

"The Routledge Dictionary of Cultural References in Modern French" is the
ideal reference for all undergraduate and postgraduate students of French
seeking to enhance their understanding of the French language. It will also
be of interest to teachers, translators and Francophiles alike. French
students in khâgne, Sciences-Po and schools of journalism will also find
this valuable and relevant for their studies.
