Exploring languages, accents, and accentism

Malé Fofana loves languages. And he’s got some interesting perspective on them, for a few different reasons.

He teaches at two different universities in Sherbrooke Quebec, one in English, one in French.

Fofana’s also lived in three places that each have a distinct variety of French, growing up in Senegal, spending ten years in France, and now living in Quebec.

He’s written about an idea called accentism, discrimination based on someone’s accent.
