Title
Identité linguistique et poids des langues : une étude comparative entre des jeunes de milieu scolaire francophone au Nouveau-Brunswick et anglophone au Québec
Abstract
The authors examine the construction of identity within the context of Canadian linguistic minorities. Comparing youths attending a French language school in New Brunswick and English language schools in Quebec, they analyze the processes through which these youths construct their linguistic identity – i.e. through a negotiation between their subjective definition of Self and the identities transmitted by Others (in particular by their family and their school). Their qualitative results are presented according to different configurations of sense of identity and family environment: endogamous (majority language), endogamous (minority language), exogamous (French and English). The authors conclude that this analysis demonstrates that bilingual identification is observed within both linguistic groups; however, social issues engendered by these bilingual identities are more likely to be understood while taking into account the different weight attributed to French and English languages in the North-American context.
