Analyse linguistique de la langue française provides a complete examination of the French language, in French, at a level appropriate for non-native speakers and non-linguists.  It introduces readers to linguistic analysis, using modern French as its target of study, and covering the linguistic subfields of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics.  It provides self-check questions and could easily be used for self-learning by an individual or by students in a classroom setting. Analyse linguistique strives to present all concepts from the bottom up, assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, and includes a glossary of terms to aid non-linguists.  It is these elements that distinguish it from other books in the field, which are often written for native speakers and are sometimes inaccessible to students of the language, or which assume a background in linguistics that not all readers have.  In addition, the book includes exercises placed strategically throughout each chapter, which allow the reader to verify his/her comprehension of each concept before moving on to the next topic.
