Faux Amis and Key Words : A Dictionary-Guide to French Life and Language through Lookalikes and Confusables, Hardback Book

Faux Amis and Key Words : A Dictionary-Guide to French Life and Language through Lookalikes and Confusables Hardback

Part of the Linguistics: Bloomsbury Academic Collections series

Hardback

Description

Witty, entertaining, and informative, this book on so-called 'false friends' will be of immediate use to anyone using the French language and needing to understand French society and culture.

The individual entries have been carefully designed to carry the basic linguistic information required and then develop into a wider consideration of the social and cultural context within which the specific words and phrases are used in current French.

As this title is supposed to be used in conjunction with and not instead of a dictionary, it also offers a brief list of recommended reading ranging from standard dictionaries to introductory works on French society and institutions.
