Course Description

This course considers the structure of present-day French from the perspective of historical, geographic, and social variation. How did French develop from spoken Latin and what did it look like 1000 years ago? How have the various regional and world dialects of French arisen, and what continues to make each of them unique today? What is the relationship between French and languages with which it is in close contact, such as Breton, Occitan, or Creole? Finally, how do individuals vary their use of French according to social situations, and how do speakers continue to innovate, making French – like all living languages -- a continually evolving form of expression?
