This edition has been updated with new core texts for Chapters 9 and 16, one new revision text (2), and a variety of new exercises throughout. Page references to the relevant sections of two additional reference grammar books, M. L’Huillier, Advanced French Grammar, and P. Turk and G.G. Vandaele, Action grammaire, have been provided in each chapter. The Bibliography has been updated to include these books, as well as the most recent editions of the other works listed. In the reprint of the third edition of French Grammar in Context, the page references in each chapter to A Comprehensive Grammar of Modern French had already been updated to refer to the sixth edition (2008), using the name of G. Price, who substantially revised it, rather than the names of the original compilers, L. S. R. Byrne and E. L. Churchill. Further changes have now been made as follows. The page references to Mary E. Coffman Crocker, Schaum’s Outline of French Grammar here refer to the fifth edition, published in 2009, and the page references to R. Hawkins and R. Towell, French Grammar and Usage to the third edition, published in 2010. Minor corrections and revisions have been made elsewhere. In particular, the occasional glosses to the texts have been standardised so that they are all now in English, the language used for the grammatical explanations and the rubrics for the exercises.
This new edition is supplemented by a companion website. The companion website provides a wealth of additional interactive exercises to practise the material covered within the book. These interactive exercises have been written by Isabelle Gourdin-Sangouard.
