Abstract:

French is a syntactically interesting language, with aspects of its word
order and clause structure triggering a variety of important developments
in syntactic theory. This is a concise and accessible guide to the syntax
of Modern French, providing a clear overview of those aspects of the
language that are of particular interest to linguists. A broad variety of
topics are covered, including the development and spread of French; the
evolution of its syntax; syntactic variation; lexical categories; noun,
verb and adjective phrases; clause structure; movement; and agreement.
Drawing on the work of a wide range of scholars, it highlights the
important role of French in the development of syntactic theory and shows
how French challenges some fundamental assumptions about syntactic
structure. An engaging and in-depth guide to all that is interesting about
French, The Syntax of French will be invaluable to students and scholars of
syntactic theory and comparative linguistics.
