Abstract

Attitudes towards the French language in ‘le monde de la francophonie’ have
been deeply influenced by language policies developed in France since the
seventeenth century. Through vigorous and sometimes brutal language
planning programmes, multilingual France emerged in this century as a
unilingual French state. In addition to legislating against non-French
languages, policy makers in France insured that only the ‘Ile de France’
dialect emerged as the prestige standard form of the language. By virtue of
its population and cultural vitality, France today can still be considered
the heart of the francophone world. Consequently, it seems appropriate to
devote the first part of this chapter to the development of language
attitudes in France.
