Title
Bilingual Communication in Montreal: Some Matched-Guise Studies
Abstract
The author provides an overview of dialogue and face-to-face matched-guise studies designed to explore French/English language switching in Montreal since the adoption of Bill 101 (the Charter of the French Language) in 1977. The author points out that the data shows that Bill 101 may have had a "carry-over effect" which increased French use by Anglophones in their encounters with Francophones on the streets of Montreal over the decades. By 1997, field studies showed that both Anglophones and Francophones overwhelmingly converged to each other's linguistic needs.
