Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the publication of two new entries on the site of the Encyclopédie grammaticale du français (EGF) :

– Les Verbes attributifs (‘Copular verbs’ ; 45 pages, by P. Lauwers, E. Tobback and N. Van Wettere)

The EGF is a peer-reviewed knowledge base that publishes states-of-the art on a whole range of descriptive topics related to French grammar and linguistics. It is freely accessible on the website

The EGF currently includes 27 articles totaling 870 pages. Twenty new contributions are in preparation.
The articles are commissioned by the editorial board and written by specialists of the topic at hand. They are subject to a thorough review process and intended to be updated as needed.

On the EGF website, you will find a description of the objectives of the EGF, the details of the editorial process, a table of contents, and a terminology index.

A search interface is available for each individual record and for the entire database. It is also possible to register to be notified of new publications.
