 Regional Language Policies in France during World War II

Although the promotion of the French language was highly centralized, until
World War II regional languages in France were able to survive as they
helped maintain and assert 'little homeland' identities in their respective
regions. This became increasingly difficult during Germany's occupation of
France in World War II, when the struggle to preserve regional languages
and local identities rapidly became more overt and political. This book
offers a detailed historical sociolinguistic analysis of the various
language policies applied in France's regions (Brittany, Southern France,
Corsica and Alsace) before, during and after WWII, making it of particular
interest to researchers of both language policy and French history.
