Here are the show notes for Episode 54, in which Raj and Dan talk to Dr Florent Moncomble, Senior Lecturer in English Linguistics at University of Artois, France about what English and French have in common and all the discourses swirling around French that are also relevant to English, including:

  • The role of L’Académie Française

  • Prescriptivism in French and English

  • Complaints about decline, destruction, young people and migration and why they use the same language proxies as their English counterparts.

  • What French linguists are doing to address these misunderstandings and misrepresentations.
