Summary Connecting words and phrases are essential for discussion, clarity and fluency in any language. French is particularly reliant on connecting language: also and in fact have more than fifteen equivalent words and expressions in French. This is the first French-English dictionary to focus on this fascinating and crucial part of the language. The dictionary presents nearly 200 full entries in alphabetical order. Entries define, discuss and exemplify a whole range of connecting language in French. In addition to these full entries, the dictionary includes some 400 other connecting structures. More than 2,000 authentic examples, chosen from a variety of registers and many different contexts and written mainly in contemporary prose, add further clarity. This dictionary is the ideal reference for advanced students, teachers and translators of the French language.
