Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2,0, LMU Munich (Amerikanistik Institut), course: Canada Today, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This research paper wants to discuss the question, whether French is able to remain the predominant language in Canada´s province Quebec, or if there is a shift towards replacement by the English language. Obviously, the number of the French speaking population in Quebec is a lot higher than the one that speaks English. Currently, about 9% of world´s Francophones are Canadians and of those, around 30% are Quebecers. French is the mother tongue of over 80% of the Quebecois population, and of only 13%, it is English (Gentsch 142). It seems as if the roles in Quebec are assigned. But English is the world language and is spoken in the rest of Canada as well as by 280 million inhabitants of its huge southern neighbor, the United States of America. Quebec is surrounded by English speaking countries. Will a small province like Quebec be able to preserve its culture and its language or is it going to be overswept by the wave of "anglicization" after all? Canadians are very proud of their culture and language. It is very important for foreigners, who visit Quebec, to speak French. In an newspaper article about a winter festival in Quebec, a German boy said about himself and his friends: „Wir alle können kein Französisch" (Tourisme du Quebec) and therefore implicated that it is not possible to manage a visit in the Canadian province without knowing any French. But Quebec is not an only-French speaking province, is it? In almost all parts of the world, tourists, who visit other countries, are able to correspond in English there. In Quebec, although about 11% of all inhabitants are Anglophones, people prefer leading a conversation in French. They are proud of their culture and their language and therefore, they are looking down on everything that could endanger it. Quebe
