Aims and Scope
The French language is spoken and used in a number of different countries and regions worldwide. It thus finds itself in contact, and sometimes in competition, with numerous other languages which have taken influence on the various local varieties of French and continue to do so today. This handbook provides an overview of the different linguistic situations and constellations the French language has been part of, both in the past and today.
