The chapter surveys some of the most salient aspects of French phonology which have figured in both the theoretical literature and, more recently, in acquisition studies. Among the issues discussed are segmental inventories and acquisition, voice onset time (VOT), stress/rhythm, syllables and syllable structure, liaison, latent consonants and schwa. The chapter ends with suggestions for further directions in examining issues in French phonology that could usefully be investigated from a second language acquisition perspective.
