Linguistic Chaos in Montreal
French districts: e.g. Plateau-Mont-Royal
e.g. a street in Westmount
A quiet, civilized afternoon,
lawn bowling in Westmount
A less civilized pass-time,
shopping at Marché Jean-Talon
The Zone of Linguistic Confusion (Z.L.C.)
Virtually all of Montreal’s tourist zone, plus the contact zone between East Island & West Island
Nevertheless, most Montrealers wouldn’t want to live anywhere else
What accounts for the magic of this city?
Why do people fall in love with it?
(just over half the size of Central Park, NY, but bigger than Zilker Park)
Could these spaces be the “glue” that holds it all together?
