The Great Grammar of French

Arles - Littérature - Friday 3 December 2021 between 6 pm and 8 pm. - Free

Meeting with

Four linguists who were the driving force behind the GGF:

Anne ABEILLÉ and Danièle GODARD who directed the publication

with the collaboration of Annie DELAVEAU and Antoine GAUTIER

On the occasion of the publication in autumn 2021 of La Grande Grammaire du Français (Actes sud / Imprimerie nationale éditions)

Until now, language lovers, teachers, students and all those who pass on the language have not had a comprehensive grammar that takes stock of the vitality of contemporary French (from 1950 to today's digital writings) and deciphers the diversity of all written and oral uses, including those that deviate from theories taught. This is now a reality!

The work of a large group of linguists, this new grammar provides a synthesis of the numerous and fruitful research projects carried out over the last thirty years in the field of language sciences.

By avoiding any normative approach, it helps us to understand, write and speak the language of our time. By seeking to reduce the gap between the language described in textbooks and everyday French, it responds to the feeling of linguistic insecurity that is all too often felt.

The GGF is the result of a project initiated under the aegis of the Institut de linguistique française (CNRS) and the Direction générale à la langue française et aux langues de France (DGLFLF).
