Editorial Reviews


"The whole thing was well planned and well executed. This is good, sound, professional stuff." Canadian Journal of Linguistics

"...perhaps the most interested reader would be the researcher in language planning with a special interest in the French-speaking world; in fact, for such a reader, the text may well be uniquely useful. Anthropologists who do fieldwork in any of the French-speaking countries will find the book moderately useful as well...." Anthropological Linguistics

Book Description

British and French linguists present a profile of the French language in its social context by examining trends throughout the French-speaking world and addressing issues regarding prescriptivism, gender and language, and regional languages and dialects.
