Papers on French linguistics, most in French, address the following topics: micro structural treatment of regionalisms in three French dictionaries; effects of the use of Quebec French on the intelligibility of synthesized speech; reading comprehension as a constructive process; acoustic markers of the utterance in Quebec French; constraints and phonological alternations in the French lexicon; second language learning in the Basque Country: Euskera, Basque language, versus foreign languages; an experiential approach to a second language conversation course; the ambisyllabic quality of intervocalic consonants in Quebec French; brain hemisphere preference and treatment of information by the interpreter; expression of scientific facts, through use of verbs, in several specialized texts; an onomastic approach to differential analysis of counter-argumentative connectors in French, English, and Spanish; a model for understanding literal and non-literal language with a common language mechanism (paper in English); moraic theories and syllabic structures; phonological tendencies as indications of a dynamic synchrony in the Black English spoken in Georgia; and phonological constraints and English loan words in Quebec French.
