Multicultural London English and Multicultural Paris French (MLE – MPF) 

This is a sociolinguistic project which aims to compare the effect of language contact on contemporary London English and contemporary Paris French.  It pays particular attention to patterns of variation and change in the main languages, English and French, that are influenced by varieties spoken by minority ethnic groups, including Afro-Caribbeans in the UK and French Caribbeans and Maghrebis in France.
