Exploring French Text Analysis: Interpretations of National Identity

Front Cover
Exploring French Text Analysisintroduces students of French to a range of methods of text analysis, including stylistics and discourse analysis.
The editors provide a clear framework for analysing written French critically. Through a series of commentaries on a range of texts by different contributors, they present a variety of models for readers to follow.
The texts have been carefully chosen both to illustrate key points of language analysis and to present a picture of national identity. Texts including adverts, newspapers, magazines, travel writing, fiction and political texts cover a range of topics such as food, sport, law and the arts. The book also includes a comprehensive glossary of linguistic terms.
