Description

The goal of this workshop is to allow those who have studied Old French and Middle French to practice and improve their pronunciation of these early forms of French. Whether one teaches the texts and wishes to help students understand the evolution of the French language through time, including pronunciation, or only engages in research, pronunciation approximating that of the past enhances the scholar's experience and engagement with any text.
