This study examines the usage of preposition "pour" in the written and spoken French of two groups of Grade 9 and 12 Franco-Ontarian bilingual students from Welland and from the Sudbury area. Both the students' written and spoken French are shown to include a substantial proportion of constructions with "pour" which deviate from formal Franco-Ontarian French. A comparison of the French of the Franco-Ontarian students with that of unilingual francophone Quebeckers indicates that these constructions are typical of Franco-Ontarian French and may be partly attributed to interference from the English language.
