Problems and Perspectives : Studies in the Modern French Language, Paperback / softback Book

Problems and Perspectives : Studies in the Modern French Language Paperback / softback

Part of the Longman Linguistics Library series

Paperback / softback

Description

Problems and Perspectives- Studies in the Modern French Language looks at a number of interesting or problematic areas in the phonology, morphology, syntax and lexis of the French language and encourages the reader to think critically about different ways of approaching, describing and explaining these issues or data. The book is divided into two parts- the first section is a preliminary to, and contextualises, the discussion of the more specialised topics of the second part.

Part two presents problematic and controversial areas in the description and analysis of the contemporary language.

Where appropriate historical and sociolinguistic issues are also integrated into the discussion of modern French. Aimed primarily at advanced students and researchers in French linguistics, the introductory sections of part one also make this book accessible to undergraduates beginning their study of French linguistics, and to less specialised readers.
