Special Features of Quebec French In the Context of Franco-Quebec Endoglossic Situation

The article reviews a new book Le français québécois entre réalité et idéologie. Un autre regard sur la langue (Quebec French: Between Reality and Ideology. Another Take on the Language) by Lionel Meney, a Canadian linguist. The author discusses the question of how the two variants of French – the Quebec French and the French of France – co-exist on the territory of modern Quebec. L. Meney comes to the conclusion that the linguistic situation in Quebec cannot be homogenous, because the growth of Quebec’s national identity strengthens the development of the national variant of the French language, and the desire of Quebecers for unity with the francophone of the whole world is connected with the usage of the French of France.
