Introduction to the structure of the French language: phonology, morphology, and syntax.
Taught by Jeffrey Lamontagne.
An introduction to the French language from the point of view of descriptive linguistics. Students discover the hidden structure underlying everyday speech, with a focus on French: how speech sounds are produced and combined (phonology), how words are built from smaller meaningful pieces (morphology), and how those words combine into sentences (syntax). Through this course, students gain a better understanding not only of the French language, but also of human language more broadly.
Class lectures, discussion and homework assignments for this course are done in French.
