Jersey Norman French
A Linguistic Study of an Obsolescent Dialect
First edition
By MARI JONES, Cambridge University

Drawing on an extensive corpus of original data, this comprehensive
linguistic study of Jersey Norman French offers historical and
dialectological sketches, an assessment of language planning on
Jersey, and an account of language change in progress. Mari Catrin
Jones evaluates four different types of linguistic influence found
on contemporary Jersey, including the substrate influence of Jersey
Norman French on Jersey English. Jones further establishes the
relevance of Jersey Norman French to the field of language
obsolescence. This book will be of interest to postgraduates and
researchers studying varieties of French, and language obsolescence
and change.
