Note: This seminar will be conducted in French only

Instructor: Mireille Elchacar

Do you feel that “anglicism” is a synonym for error? Do you think anglicisms should always be flushed out because they are “poor French?” How do you avoid crossing the line between careful French and purism? This training session will provide an objective examination of the question of borrowings from English.

Goal: To provide you with reasoned criteria to make informed choices about anglicisms in professional situations.

Content: The training will include theoretical portions and practical exercises.

  • The history of the usage of anglicisms in France and in Quebec will be briefly covered to help understand Canadian francophones’ current feelings about them;
  • The concepts of linguistic variation will be applied to anglicisms;
  • A variety of reference works and other tools on the subject of anglicisms will be considered;
  • We will examine the French equivalents proposed by official bodies.


Mireille Elchacar studied French editing and translation before completing master’s and doctoral degrees in linguistics. She worked on the Dictionnaire Usito, which describes standard Quebec French. She has taught linguistics at the Université de Sherbrooke since 2007, including the course “Anglicisms in Quebec,” and regularly offers French language training.
