In this blog I aim to fight against some misconceptions about language, especially stereotypes concerning French in Quebec, its status and how it is spoken.

My inspiration stems from two sources: firstly Geoffrey K. Pullum, a professor at Edinburgh University whose language chronicles were collected in 1991 in the book The Great Eskimo Vocabulary Hoax, and Other Irreverent Essays on the Study of Language (University of Chicago Press).

The name of my blog – Linguistically Correct  reveals my second source of inspiration, Jean Sévilla’s book Historiquement correct, Pour en finir avec le passé unique; that is: Historically Correct, To get over with one-sided visions of past (Paris, Perrin, 2003).

Posts will be uploaded on an irregular basis.
