Title
Local Changes in Linguistic Balance in the Bilingual Zone : Francophones de l'Ontario et Anglophones du Québec
Abstract
The authors point out that the issue of minority populations and linguistic change for Anglophones in Quebec and Francophones in Ontario is very important, affecting relationships between the groups and individual perceptions of social power. The authors undertake an analysis of linguistic change in the transition or contact zone of bilingualism along the Quebec-Ontario border in the period 1961-86. Written in both languages, the article describes changes in absolute numbers and percentage share of the total population of the minority group, Anglophones in Quebec and Francophones in Ontario. It defines regions of change, and, combining the two measures in a series of graphs, shows levels of change at the local level.
