WHY ARE AMERICANS SO HELL BENT ON DESTROYING ITS OWN HISTORY/CULTURE FOR FUCKS SAKE FUCKING REE

We aren't, its just natural assimilation because there isn't protection for french as far as I know

We will send language peace keepers from Quebec

it should at least be taught in schools in my opinion. It's an important part of Louisiana's history

>it's no longer taught in schools
Other than being blatantly wrong, your statement is inflammatory at best.
http://www.nolafrancaise.com/la-french-immersion-schools/
>no schools
ok Piere DeLousiana, calm down

There are plenty of movements to support Louisiana French but I don't see why they want to preserve their own dialect seeing as it's very different then standard french.
I agree that it's an important part of their history and culture but at this point it's useless having a state or even city with a native population with a language other than English, that would just create a sentiment like that in Quebec today.
Seeing as the second most spoken language at home in New Orleans is Spanish, they should be pushing teaching spanish in public schools as well.
>"""As of 2010, 90.31% of New Orleans residents age 5 and older spoke English at home as a primary language, while 4.84% spoke Spanish, 1.87% Vietnamese, and 1.05% spoke French. In total, 9.69% of New Orleans's population age 5 and older spoke a mother language other than English.[97]"""

PAGING PIERE
Question for any FIL DE FRANCE
1) Can you understand most of this
2) Do you consider this """french"""
3) Is it worth saving (why or why not)
4) Would you ever speak to anybody who spoke like this meaning would you immediately know that this was a French Louisianan or would you assume it was just an American stumbling his way through french.
>>
>>55063582
1) Yes
2)No, they speak like a one-year-old child or a person with severe mental retardation (and have a funny accent to boot)
3) I don't really care
4)I would assume it's an American trying to speak French
>>
>>55063582
They have pretty weird grammatical structure and the r rolling sounds really peasant like
>>
>>55062966
>France is dying slowly,so what Louisiana!
>>
>>55063582

>>
>>55063792
Can you give me a text and I try to read it in first a proper French sounding accent (to the best of my abilities) and then in an accent closest to what i heard on the interview?
I'll vocaroo of course
>>
>>55063582
1. Yes it's very easy to understand. Some words sound strange grammatically but nothing crazy.
The accent is a bit strange but it is the same for people from Canada, we're just not used to it.

2. Yeah I think. It's not that different from variations you find in Québec or Islands like Mauritius / Réunion.
Accent sounds like a peasant a bit but hey, he's catching goats for a living so it fits.

3. Why not ? If he speaks a good english it's more an asset than anything else for him, he can interact with french people without any troubles.

4. Because of how the grammar is, I would assume it's someone trying to speak french OR someone from a secluded part of Canada. But again it's very easy to understand imo, more than french talked with a very heavy american accent.

>>55063582
1)Yes all of it
2)Yes it sounds close to québecois, i'd say it's "french colons fench"
3) Obviously, world culture must be saved
4)It doesnt sound like an american seaking french and i couldnt recognise where this accent could come from.
>>
>>55063582
1. Yes
2. Yeah I guess
3. Yes, for comedic value
4. Worse than a Quebecois. I'd imagine a Quécois listen to it and be like "haha what a silly peasant language lol" which is exactly what we think of them in the first place
>>
>>55063144
If they mandated it I really doubt most would actually remember it, at most they would probably understand:
"Je m'appelle anon, je suis un gros fagot."
and thats it


Sorry French-speakers if this is awful, I have poor French, but thats the point

There is literally nothing wrong with a "peasant accent"
>>
>>55065839
"fagot" means a faggot of wood. You can use une tapette, une tarlouze, une pédale, un PD...

I don't know curses, I had to look faggot up. Back when I learned it my teacher refused to teach me and my class curses insisting we would never need them

Does it carry really bad connotations in France? Me and my friends irl constantly just casually call each other all sorts of things like faggot when we are hanging out.
>>
>>55066560
Well you usually use things like "enculé" (literally fucked in the ass), son of a bitch, bastard, insult mothers... Not many race based insults like "nigga" and you call people faggots in their backs, like "Pierre est un gros PD" but you wont meet Pierre face to face to call him a faggot

>>
>>55063582
1) Sure. It sounds a bit rough and rural, the grammar is a bit fucked up and some words are neologism like "graduaté" but it's almost perfectly understandable.

2) Of course.

3) Of course. It's the cultural heritage of the region, it should be preserved at all cost. At least teach French at school at an early age, and do some Cajun and Créole cultural events in schools in the entire state, and work particularly hard to preserve Cajun culture and language in counties with a large Cajun population.

4) It doesn't sound like an American trying to speak French. I wouldn't be able to be sure of where is accent is from and would probably assume he's from some rural part of Québec. But now I know what Cajun French sounds like, so if someone that spoke like this came to talk to me, I would recognise it as a Cajun French accent.
>>
It's no coincidence that the region with the best food and culture was French
>>
Cajuns are bro tier, but their French sounds nothing like real French so the French don't care about it.
Colonial French is even more in danger: it's been in Louisiana longer than Cajun yet it's almost entirely gone, and only exists as a merged version of some Cajun dialcets.

Why can't Frenchies accept that their language sounds gay? I admit that a disproportionate amount of Americans are stupid (including me because I probably misspelled "disproportionate" and "misspelled"), Brazilians begrudgingly admit that they aren't white, why do the French think they're so special and they're the only perfect nationality?
