Final project

As part of the class I took last semester, we each analyzed a language that we had not studied. While my intention was not to choose a Romance language, French is where I had a native speaker willing to help. So French it is.

The point of this exercise was to tease out the way the language works as spoken. I don't know that I did the best job in the world, but I did learn a bit about French. I added a section on the history of French, since I knew a little about that. In all honesty, that may be the best portion of the project for non-linguists who are curious about French.
