MAIS, SA C'EST QUEQUE CHOSE QUAND MEME!Cajun French is still widely heard throughout Louisiana. However, thesurvival of this language-spoken by the descendants of the exiled Acadians-hasby no means been assured (it was even illegal to speak it at one time), andeven today the teaching of Cajun French in schools is a controversial issue.Now, the publication of Conversational Cajun French I , the firstsystematic approach to teaching the language, makes Cajun French accessible tothose born outside Cajun families.Authors Randall Whatley and Harry Jannise, Cajuns who speak fluent CajunFrench, originally developed this handbook for a series of informalconversational Cajun French classes for the LSU Union in Baton Rouge.As an introduction to Cajun French, the book is extremely practical.Conversational Cajun French I focuses on everyday words andcommon phrases that can be understood everywhere the language is spoken,despite the various dialects and subdialects. It teaches the Cajun words forthe days and months, holidays, parts of the body, number, clothing, colors,rooms of the house and their furnishings, foods, animals, fruits andvegetables, tools, plants, and trees. In addition, there is a section of usefulexpressions and a list of traditional Cajun names.Although the book is designed to be used in conjunction with tapes,* apronunciation guide enables even the beginning student working alone to learnenough to converse with Cajuns or at least enough to stay out of troublein South Louisiana.Conversational Cajun French I is an important book not onlybecause it provides a means for those trying to learn Cajun French on theirown, but also because it marks an effort to preserve the Cajun French languageand culture and to win a wider acceptance for this unique aspect ofLouisiana's-and indeed the United States'-heritage. Also available on audiocassette.Randall P. Whatley is the author of 'Conversational Cajun French I (French and English Edition)', published 1982 under ISBN 9780882893167 and ISBN 0882893165.
