Book Information


Title: Fundamentals of French Syntax
Written By: Christopher Gledhill
Series Title: LINCOM Coursebooks in Linguistics 11
Description:

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.
