Title
Social Psychological Aspects of French-English Relations in Quebec: From Vitality to Linguicism
Abstract
The author analyzes how language laws such as the Charter of the French Language (Bill 101) succeeded in changing the respective vitality of the Francophone majority and of the Anglophone minority in Quebec, and offers a selective review of empirical studies showing how the use of French and English changed following thirty years of language planning in favour of French in Quebec. He concludes by offering an overview of social psychological studies exploring issues such as multiple identities, feeling of belonging, feeling of threat and of being a victim of linguicism in Quebec.
