Title: A Sociolinguistic History of Parisian French
Written By: R. Anthony Lodge
URL: http://www.cup.org/linguistics
Description:

Paris became the largest city in the Western world during the thirteenth
century, and has remained influential ever since. This book examines the
interlinked history of Parisian speech and the Parisian population through
various phases of immigration, dialect-mixing and social stratification
from the Middle Ages to the present. It reveals how new urban modes of
speech developed during periods of expansion, how the city's elites sought
to distinguish their language from that of the masses, and how a
working-class vernacular eventually emerged with its own "slang" vocabulary.
