This chapter examines the notion that the study of French in the UK today is framed by a series of historical assumptions about the nature of the French language, and about the implications of speaking French for individuals who are British-based. It explains how languages and conversation came to be critical sites for the representation, articulation, and production of national and gender identities in the eighteenth century.

Keywords:   French Studies, French language, conversation, national identity, gender identity, eighteenth century
