I am currently doing a research Masters in Modern French Culture. I am looking at the role of Linguistic Institutions in today's multicultural society.
In Great Britain, the only real Linguistic Institution is the Oxford English Dictionary which does not have the same role as the Académie Française.
My discussion point is this:
Do you believe that the Académie Française no longer serves a purpose in preserving the French language? Do such institutions limit how languages evolve? Do we need such an institution in Great Britain?
Your thoughts are welcomed! Merci d'avance!
