Canadian French Facts
The Canadian French language does not actually find its origins in Old French, but rather the French language spoken during the 17th and 18th centuries, which was spoken in France prior to the British conquest of Canada. Following the conquest, the linguistic community became isolated from the affects on the French language to come, and has retained several old pronunciations, such as in the words for ‘me’ and ‘you’.
Grammatically, there are occasional differences between European French and Canadian French in spelling and the feminine and masculine forms of words. Canadian French has also borrowed heavily from the English language, especially during the industrial revolution, resulting in a unique vocabulary for different professions.
