    The purpose of this course is to study contemporary French phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. All elements are first studied from a descriptive point of view. This leads to the acquisition of a more advanced competence in the area of French linguistics. Special emphasis is then laid on the functional regularity of verbal and syntactical components. Basic tendencies in the semantic development of contemporary French will also be stressed. Study of French texts and documents serves as support for the study of the general language evolution in the last 20 years. Finally, presentation of the fundamental elements of French pragmatics will encompass, among others, the following processes: ideational clauses, discursive categorization, speech acts and situational pragmatics, all aspects of French that could also be used to better understand contemporary French literary texts. In French.
