FREN 494 - Medieval French Language
This course offers students the opportunity to acquire a solid working knowledge of French as a living, culturally grounded language in the 12th and 13th centuries, when French was an established medium for literary and non-literary expression. Students will learn the language hands-on through reading and studying a single work of literature. The literary text is used as the springboard for studying the grammar (morphology, syntax, vocabulary) in the context of its historical expressive usage. The course will provide students with the tools and the hands-on experience to read, understand, and translate medieval French texts into modern French or English. A good foundation in modern French language is required. Knowledge of Latin or Linguistics is not required.
Course counts towards the French major and Minor, and fulfills the department’s Post-advanced Language requirement and Linguistics requirement for undergraduates. Also open to qualified others. 

Cross-listed with Medieval Studies.
