"Something needs to be done about grammar.” Katz and Blyth have written this book with the hope of changing the way French instructors teach and conceive of grammar. Intended to help teachers and teacher trainers develop an understanding of French discourse that is grounded in recent theoretical and sociolinguistic research, this book is devoted to informing teachers-in-training, as well as experienced teachers, about cutting-edge methods for teaching grammar. It also describes the grammatical features of the French language in its social context. At the same time, it provides suggestions for applying such abstract knowledge in practical pedagogical ways, for example, how to structure grammatical explanations, devise classroom activities, and take advantage of resources that give students greater exposure to French as it is truly used in various discourse environments.

This volume is a collection of studies by some of the foremost researchers of French acquisition in the generative framework. It provides a unique perspective on cross-learner comparative research in that each chapter examines the development of one component of the grammar (functional categories) across different contexts in French learners: i.e. first language acquisition, second language acquisition, bilingual first language acquisition and specifically-language impaired acquisition. This permits readers to see how similar issues and morphosyntactic properties can be investigated in a range of various acquisition situations, and in turn, how each context can contribute to our general understanding of how these morphosyntactic properties are acquired in all learners of the same language. This state-of-the-art collection is enhanced by an introductory chapter that provides background on current formal generative theory, as well as a summary and synthesis of the major trends emerging from the individual studies regarding the acquisition of different functional categories across different learner contexts in French.

Es gibt hervorragende Grammatiken und Syntaxen, die die Satz- und die Wortgruppenebene beschreiben, sowie bewährte text- und gesprächslinguistische Ansätze für die Modellierung text- und gesprächsgrammatischer Strukturen. Was die meisten dieser Ansätze mit der Schulgrammatik verbindet, ist die ‚von unten nach oben‘-Perspektive: vom Wort zum Satz und evtl. vom Satz zum Text. Das Konzept dieses Buches ist diametral entgegengesetzt. Die Grammatische Textanalyse ist eine funktionale Syntax, die das grammatische System ,von oben nach unten‘ – von der Text- (Textglieder) über die Satz- (Satzglieder) zur Wortgruppenebene (Wortgruppenglieder) – zu rekonstruieren versucht. Dabei wird ein sog. Leittext durch das Buch ‚gereicht‘ und hinsichtlich aller im Text vorkommenden Text-, Satz- und Wortgruppenglieder durchanalysiert. Die Leittextanalyse soll sowohl die empirische Anwendbarkeit des Ansatzes dokumentieren als auch ein Analysemuster liefern, um den Leser bei eigenen grammatischen Textanalysen zu unterstützen. Auf Satzebene wird durch die Unterscheidung statischer und dynamischer Satzglieder eine neue Satzgliedlehre vorgeschlagen, die die Beschreibung einer breiten Palette grammatisch konventioneller wie kreativer Textsequenzen ermöglicht.

This 1999 reference grammar, written for advanced students of French, their teachers, and others who want a better understanding of the French language, combines the best of modern and traditional approaches. Its objective is not only practical mastery of the language, but familiarity with its structure. Taking into account modern linguistic research, Advanced French Grammar approaches the French language primarily through the study of syntactic structures, but without excessive emphasis on formalism. It provides a generous number of examples, based on the author's own experience of teaching French to English-speakers, to help the student to understand the different meanings of apparently similar syntactic alternatives. The norms of 'correct expression' are given together with current usage and deviations, and appendixes provide information on the 1990 spelling reforms and on numbers. A substantial index of French and English words and of topics provides easy access to the text itself.
