Abstract
When Tom McArthur, a Scottish linguist and educator, became Associate Professor of English at the Université du Québec, he was quite surprised to discover the extent to which the English of bilingual anglophones in Quebec was influenced by French. In this pioneering study of Quebec English, McArthur records many of its lexical peculiarities and surveys the attitudes of respondents toward gallicisms in their speech.
