about

Designed for students, this analysis of the principal areas of French grammar combines the insights of modern linguistic theory with those of more traditional grammarians. The book offers a comprehensive discussion of the French language, including verbs and verb phrases, voice, tense and aspect, the noun phrase, and prepositions; there are exercises, and useful guides to further reading. Foundations of French Syntax assumes no prior knowledge of linguistics, and will appeal to students and teachers of linguistics, French and other Romance languages.
