The three following areas share points of intersection and define my research interests.

1. Linguistics. Dialectology, Lexicology, Lexicography and Toponymy.

I am mostly interested in the origin, formation and evolution of the French lexicon in Canada and in the various tools (glossaries, dictionaries, atlases etc.) developed for its representation. Québec lexicography, in particular, because of issues arising from the absence of a native norm, is of great interest to me. As well, I am interested in the links between the lexicon and toponymy and in the linguistic treatment of place-names in the geographical nomenclature of Canada and the United States .

2. Canadian Studies. Canadian French and Francophone Communities. Canadian Toponymy.

The interdisciplinary focus that underlines Canadian Studies allows me to explore the links between geography, history and linguistics in the study of the French Canadian dialect and francophone communities Canada . I am particularly interested in the impact of toponymy in the construction of Canadian identity. I am a member of the Institute of Canadian Studies .

3. Onomastics. Toponymy and Geographical Nomenclature

My research focuses on the evolution of French geographical nomenclature in North America . I am more specifically interested in the toponymy of the Voyageur Route and in the changes underwent by the original French stratum under the influence of English adstratum in the United States . I am Chair of the Advisory Committee on Nomenclature, Policy and Research at the Geographical Names Board of Canada and a member of the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names.
