What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This new book is an excellent introduction to the history of the French language from its Latin origins to the present. . . . Because of the communicative nature of the exercises that accompany each chapter, [this book] can be used in language courses, culture and civilization courses, as well as in more specialized phonetics or linguistics courses. Needless to say, this thoughtful and well-designed book is a great addition to the field of French studies. —Andrzej Dziedzic, Ph.D., professor of French at the University of Wisconsin

This book is an excellent addition to the study of the French language. The author gives brief descriptions of the historical periods in its development, including the recent abbreviations used in French text messages. It is a must for undergraduate and graduate students majoring in French and for others [who share] a passion for the language. —Lois Vines, Ph.D., professor of French and distinguished teaching professor at Ohio University
