Abstract:

This volume presents a selection of French varieties representing the great
diversity of this language along geographical, social, and stylistic
dimensions. Twelve illustrations from regions as far removed as Western Canada
and Central Africa represent widely divergent social contexts of language use.
Each chapter is based on original surveys conducted within the framework of
the Phonology of Contemporary French project, described in the Introduction.
These surveys constitute an invaluable source of new data for researchers, as
many of the varieties included are otherwise undocumented in any systematic
way. The chapters follow a similar format: presentation of the survey(s) and
the sociolinguistic dimensions of the variety studied; description of the
phonological inventory of the system(s), principal allophonic realizations,
phonotactic constraints, behavior of schwa, behavior of liaison consonants,
and other notable characteristics. The book opens with an informative
introduction and closes with a chapter providing a synthesis of the major
findings by continent.
