Originally published in 1932, this volume was created to provide a comprehensive guide to the rules of French syntax which could be used from Lower School right through to Sixth Form, thus enabling a greater degree of continuity in the learning experience. The book is divided into three parts: part I consists of a short syntax, including many examples of conversational usage; part II contains exercises and connected passages based on the different sections of the syntax; and part III comprises English prose pieces for translation into French, together with a general vocabulary to the exercises, connected passages, and prose pieces. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in linguistics and the history of pedagogy.
