A growing number of people have expertise in the French that survives in
Louisiana. Most of them contributed to Albert Valdman's French and
Creole in Louisiana, 1997. I understand that Cajun French is now offered
as a credit course at LSU in Baton Rouge, taught by Amanda LaFleur. The
English dialects of the French region are also getting some attention
and cries out to have several dissertations written about them.
