Book Information


Title: Tendances Recentes en Linguistique Fran├žaise et Generale.
Edited By: Lucien Kupferman
Hava Bat-Zeev Shyldkrot

The contributors of this book aim to present a broad spectrum of different theoretical approaches in French linguistics. Despite the apparent heterogeneity in the field, a deeper unity in the various topics emerges demonstrating that French linguistics today is more and more characterized as a consistent framework for common research. This book gives credence to the claim that French linguistics stands at a crossroads where subdomains meet and feed one another.
