Routledge
Free sample

The Vocabulary of Modern French provides a fresh insight into contemporary French.
With this book, Hilary Wise offers the first comprehensive overview of the modern French vocabulary: its historical sources, formal organisation and social and stylistic functions.
Topics covered include:
* external influences on the language
* word formation
* semantic change
* style and register
In addition, the author looks at the relationship between social and lexical change and examines attempts at intervention in the development of the language.
Each chapter is concluded by notes for further reading, and by suggestions for project work which are designed to increase awareness of specific lexical phenomena and enable the student-reader to use lexicographic databases of all kinds.
The Vocabulary of Modern French is an accessible and fascinating study of the relationship between a nation and its language, as well as providing a key text for all students of modern French.
