Adapted from a larger work,"Speaking In Tongues, Louisiana's Colonial French, Creole & Cajun Languages Tell Their Story" reveals Louisiana's remarkable old world French language traditions which continue to enchant America and scholars in all the world! But, along with the fame Cajunization has brought the State, historical distortion and misinformation fostered by mass-marketing and media myopia have suppressed and misrepresented Louisiana's historic French languages, culture and people as if uniquely Acadian in origin. But, Louisiana's diverse multi-cultural French languages, cultural traditions and people existed long before the arrival of the Acadians, who themselves were to become its beneficiaries! Author/scholars John laFleur & Brian Costello, native-speakers respectively of Louisiana's Old Colonial French/Choctaw and her sister tongue of Louisiana Afro-Creole provide a non-commercially scripted, first-time study of both the history and ethnological origins of Louisiana's diverse French-speaking peoples of the French Triangle and present the unvarnished results of their investigation, experience and the evidence of modern and historical scholarship. A must read for Louisiana cultural and linguistic afficionados!ISBN: 9783730911464Verlag: BookRix GmbH & Co. KG12.99 € inkl. gesetzl. MwSt. / ohne DRM
