Perspectives croisées : bilinguisme et acquisition du langage chez deux enfants franco-américaines, l'une vivant aux États- Unis, l'autre en France

Abstract : We look at two Franco-American children of the same age, one living in France and the other in the United States and we compare the development of their bilingualism in French and English. We base our study on a series of recordings spread over a six-month period. First, we propose a description of both languages and then we focus on parental strategies which aim to maintain and develop the minority language. We show that the more "rigorous" family does not necessarily promote a more balanced bilingualism in their child. We also emphasize the complexity of the topic as there are many intertwined factors with regards to bilingual development: environment, attitudes, parents' linguistic competences, consistency of effort, etc.
