Sample text

The passé simple has almost totally disappeared from spoken French elsewhere in the francophone world. Differences between Acadian and Quebec French are due in part to the different origins of the settlers of New France and Acadia. e. Quebec) colonists were more diversified, with substantial numbers from north of the Loire Valley. Indeed, according to a nominal census carried out in 1938, cited by Massignon (1962), one finds a very small number of family names for the total Acadian population of the Maritime Provinces: seventy-six names accounted for fully 86% of the 34,000 Acadian families surveyed.

Thus one speaks of the Madawaska region in terms of le Madawaska canadien and le Madawaska américain. 8 Westward expansion of Quebec French Just as Acadian French extends beyond the traditional boundaries of Acadie, Quebec French refers not only to the French spoken in the province of Quebec but also to the French spoken in Ontario and in western Canada.

In 1936 there were still forty-five schools in which Acadian pupils were in the majority and in which French was taught, a striking contrast to the situation in Nova Scotia.

Large consolidated schools were built, replacing many of the small district schools, including most of the Acadian schools.
