CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITY
My current research focuses on French phonology, specifically on Canadian
pronunciation. I have completed fieldwork on the French variety spoken in the Peace
River region of Alberta, and am analysing this in the context of the general structure of
Canadian French. This, in turn, is part of an international project, La phonologie du
français contemporain (PFC): usages, variétés et structure (http://www.projet-pfc.net/), a
project under the direction of Marie-Hélène Côté (Université Laval), Jacques Durand
(ERSS-UMR5610, Université de Toulouse-Le Mirail), Chantal Lyche (Université d’Oslo)
and Bernard Laks (Université de Paris X), for which I was the initial Canadian
coordinator. The broader aims of this project include an examination of the
pronunciation of French in a wide variety of communities throughout La Francophonie,
the testing of a number of phonetic and phonological theories, the exploitation of various
techniques of language processing, and the establishment of a major new database on
French phonology to complement those already available.
