Title Linguistic and Cultural Heritage of the Acadians in Maine and New Brunswick
Author Gauvin, Marie Anne
Abstract M.A. thesis from 1965. History (with some illustration) of the St. John Valley in Maine and New Brunswick, with a large emphasis on the social and linguistic traits maintained by the area's Acadian population. From http://www.francoiseparadis.com: "The most startling discovery made was that they do not speak an aberrated language. The people of the upper St. John Valley have always been made to feel and believe that they use the French language incorrectly; that they have invented words and patterns of speech that are purely incomprehensible; that because of ignorance they have distorted a beautiful language. The truth is that they have preserved almost intact the French language spoken during the period from the ninth to the sixteenth century known as Old French."
