5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent; a work which redeems language taxonomy March 14 2009
This book is excellent. It is a first class tool for the learner of French.

For decades now, linguists have had to cope with Chomsky's criticisms of the 'taxonomic' approach to language, by way of groundwork to his promotion of Transformational Generative grammar. (And let it be said, this reviewer is not setting out to take issue at all with TG-grammar.)

But for many language learners a healthy dose of the taxonomic approach is very helpful and this book provides exactly that: various areas of meaning are grouped in useful classifications. These include a selection of adjectives derived from some of the more common French proper nouns, in addition to an index.

In an age where every army truck driver is seemingly called a war hero and every novel is apparently dubbed a blockbuster, it behoves reviewers not to categorize every book as worth its weight in gold.

But this book can certainly be so described.
