Romance at a book launch near you

Posted on May 11, 2016 by

Yesterday saw CIDRAL‘s second book launch of the semester at Christie’s Bistro, and LEL was ably represented with two books, both on Romance languages.

First up was Maj-Britt Mosegaard Hansen’s The Structure of Modern Standard French, a new student grammar of the language. Julio Villa-Garcia introduced this one before taking a back seat as his own book The syntax of multiple-que sentences in Spanish was introduced by Delia Bentley.

Congratulations to both! Manchet hopes that these volumes enjoy a much wider readership than the pointless tomes which now serve an ornamental purpose lining the walls of Christie’s.
