       BIBLIOGRAPHY OF WORKS REFERRED TO OR CONSULTED -- GENERAL 
       iNDEX -- LIST OF FRENCH VERB FORMS 
520    This study is based on the writings and teaching of 
       Gustave Guillaume (1883-1960), one of the earliest 
       proponents of what is today called Cognitive Linguistics. 
       It offers (1) a much needed presentation in English of 
       Guillaume's view of the French system, (2) the 
       clarifications added by his successors, and (3) much 
       empirical detail added by the author from his own 
       extensive experience with the material.The word system in 
       this work, as explained in the very first chapter, is 
       intended in the Saussurian sense of a closed set of 
       contrasts. The method is first briefly applied to English,
       in order to familiarize the reader with the methodological
       concepts and terminology, and comparisons are made with 
       the general outline of the French system.The major sub-
       systems of the French verb are analysed in the four 
       central chapters (4-7) entitled Aspect, Voice, Tense, Mood,
       followed by a chapter on systemic comparison, and two 
       final chapters of detailed analysis of the verbal 
       morphology and its relevance to the cognitive system
