This new edition of theModern French Grammaris an innovative reference guide to French, combining traditional and function-based grammar in a single volume. Divided into two parts, Part A covers traditional grammatical categories such as word order, nouns, verbs and adjectives and Part B is organized around language functions and notions such as:

  • giving and seeking information
  • describing processes and results
  • expressing likes, dislikes and preferences.

With a strong emphasis on contemporary usage, all grammar points and functions are richly illustrated with examples. Implementing feedback from users of the first edition of the Grammar, this second edition includes clearer explanations and greater emphasis on areas of particular difficulty for learners of French.

This is the ideal reference grammar for learners of French at all levels, from beginner to advanced. No prior knowledge of grammatical terminology is assumed and a glossary of grammatical terms is provided. This Grammaris complemented by theModern French Grammar WorkbookSecond Edition which features related exercises and activities.

Margaret Lang is Professor of French, and Isabelle Perez is Teaching Fellow, both at the School of Management and Languages, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Routledge Modern Grammars -

¿The entire series is outstanding. Why? Because it's totally practical without getting stuck in grammatical obscurities. It reflects the actual, contemporary use of the language as it is used by ordinary, educated speakers.¿ - Harold Goodman, author of the Michel Thomas courses
