Cover of book Hommages à France Martineau

A book paying tribute to France Martineau, distinguished university professor in the Département de français, holder of the University Research Chair in Language and Migration in French America and founding director of the Polyphonies du français laboratory, is now available.

France Martineau’s influence on North American French linguistics is immense. She has redefined the field of historical sociolinguistics with regard to the history of French in Canada and in North America by focusing on speaker-writers who had previously been ignored and creating corpora specifically designed to answer questions about change in language.
