Aimed at advanced students of French without an extensive background in linguistics,Savoir direclearly and accessibly explains all major features of standard French pronunciation. The text successfully integrates pronunciation practice into all the major components of general French study: language, linguistics, culture, and literature. This edition provides students and professors with a fresh view of contemporary French pronunciation. Variety and balance of practice exercises include activities that focus on pronunciation of everyday words and phrases, frequently used grammatical forms, nursery rhymes, dialogues, and poetry. Linguistic Noteshighlight regional and social variations in pronunciation, concentrating on the major areas of France and Quebec, as well as the most up-to-date research in French linguistics on the changes in French pronunciation. Areas of focus include phonetics, the vocabulary of the speech organs, and correct pronunciation.
