Title :Le francoprovençal et ses graphies : Situation actuelle des patois du Bugey
Authors :Delbarre, Franck
Issue Date :Nov-2015
Abstract :Providing a proper written form to an unwritten language with no written tradition has been a constant matter in the debate regarding the conservation of endangered languages’ linguistic inheritance throughout the world. But among endangered languages, there are also some that have been written sometimes for centuries, even only occasionally, though not necessarily under the same written forms, whether it is because of its various dialectal divisions or because the authors of those texts did not especially obey any well defined written conventions. That is actually the case of the Francoprovençal language, for which texts have been existing from the early Middle-Age but the speakers of which have failed till very recently in giving their own linguistic area a unified way to write its own various dialects. We will be interested here in the way Francoprovençal dialects of the Bugey region (Eastern France) have been dealing with this matter from the beginning of the 20Th century to nowadays and try to situate them within the historical frame of the process of “giving a written form to Francoprovençal dialects”. We will then see at which scale the situation of the Francoprovençal dialects of Bugey has been rather a fit illustration of the current situation in the whole of the Francoprovençal area, despite recent international efforts (in 2004) in order to solve this problem of writing.
