FRENCH GRAMMAR

French Grammar French is a Romance language spoken originally in France, Belgium, and Switzerland, and today by about 175 million people around the world as a mother tongue or fluent second language, with significant populations in 54 countries.

French grammar shares several notable features with most other Romance languages, including:
  • the loss of Latin's declensions
  • only two grammatical genders
  • the development of grammatical articles from Latin demonstratives
  • new tenses formed from auxiliaries

French word order is Subject Verb Object, except when the object is a pronoun, in which case the word order is Subject Object Verb. Some rare archaisms allow for different word orders.
