Tu parles suisse ou francaise? - etude socio-lingistique et lexicale

Abstract [en]

This is a study of the French language as it is used in the western part of Switzerland, and more particularly the Vaudois dialect used in the Canton of Vaud. One aim is to provide a description of the type of French used in the Canton of Vaud and a comparison with standard French and with the other French-speaking cantons. Several examples of linguistic, lexical and phonological differences are provided. Another aim is to present what the different speakers of this Swiss variety of French feel about their language in relation to its standard version, and to present the domains in which they use it. The study is based on a corpus established in 2003 and consists of a questionnaire on linguistic habits and attitudes and lexical usage of the Vaudois dialect. The study shows that this dialect is still widespread among the population, but that its use is often restricted to spoken language and is avoided in the presence of French speakers living outside of Switzerland. A sense of inferiority is felt by many French speakers living in the Canton of Vaud, and this especially when using the local dialect.
