This chapter describes a joint sociolinguistic research project by French and British teams, which examines the influence on the English and French languages of varieties spoken by major communities of immigrant origin, including Afro-Caribbeans in the UK, French Caribbeans and Maghrebis in France. This project would not only contribute to the understanding sociolinguistic processes of language change but also sheds light on the impact of the integration of target communities in the relevant societies, measured through language, cultural identity and school integration. Two recent projects funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), which examined the English spoken in multi-ethnic districts of London, are used as the basis for collecting similar data in Paris.

Keywords:   languages, Afro-Caribbeans, French Caribbeans, Maghrebis, sociolinguistic process, cultural identity, school integration, UK Economic and Social Research Council, ESRC, Paris
