French Language Course

History of the French Language

The present site is not meant to serve as a History of the French Language textbook. A number of the nearly 100 links may seem extraneous to traditional historical linguists; some of them show a political bias, and some do not bring the accuracy of a Mildred Pope to the task. With few exceptions, descriptions of gradual phonemic shifts in French are lacking on the WWW. This kind of internal history, along with some aspects of external history are more effectively studied in print . What the site offers is great wealth in the variety of its historical topics, including modern efforts to legislate French language use.

Learning French and French Grammar

The University of Adelaide Library has compiled a list of useful French resources on the World Wide Web.  Links to dictionaries, encyclopedias, electronic newspapers, journals, texts, literature, and more, selected and annotated.
