Title
Language Planning and French-English Bilingual Communication: Montreal Field Studies from 1977 to 1997
Abstract
An analysis of how Quebec's language laws succeeded in changing the respective ethnolinguistic vitality of the Francophone majority and Anglophone minority in the province. The authors also retest earlier empirical field studies of bilingual communication in Montreal by having randomly accosted pedestrians asked for directions in either English or French. Results of the 1997 study showed that both Francophone and Anglophone pedestrians overwhelmingly converged to the linguistic needs of the person seeking directions.
