About this book


During Germany's occupation of France in WWII, French regional languages became a way for people to assert their local identities. This book offers a detailed historical sociolinguistic analysis of the various language policies applied in France's regions (Brittany, Southern France, Corsica and Alsace) before, during and after WWII.
