Quebecers accent on youtube or on the internet in general doesn’t sound good. It,s dreadful. The way they write their sentences in french is unbearable. They add all their littles dialects and make grammatical errors seamingly on purpose, just to prove they are true-born quebecers. They also add too much swearing words, as if they were reading their text out loud.
It isn’t professionnal, cute, badass or clever.
It is dumb, insulting, and makes them look like complete tools.
OH YES OH YES YES YES I LIVE FOR THESE POSTS. YOU WANNA DO THIS, ASSHOLE? LET’S DO THIS.
If you think that any of us open our mouths with the intention of sounding pleasant to others, you are very wrong. We don’t give a fuck. We literally give zero fucks about what people like you think. I cannot believe that you think that your opinion is SO IMPORTANT that we would take it into consideration when we speak. I am not a suck-up. I will not break my speech into pieces and repaint and reassemble it so that useless fucking brussels sprouts like you will condescendingly pat me on the head and say, “Awww, what a nice accent you have.” Our speech is raw. Our vowels are long and our syllables are sharp. Our words flow fast and don’t wait for anyone.
Especially not you. Especially not any of you patronizing pieces of shit who like to pretend that we speak a bastardized version of the French language instead of a valid dialect. You think I’m unbearable to listen to? Good. Fantastic, actually. I will talk your ear off. I will talk until you get it through your thick fucking skull that no dialect is superior to any other, and that those things you call “grammatical errors” are actually very interesting dialectical markers that are — surprise!! — very much grammatical so long as they can be produced by a native speaker. Your ignorance is truly astounding.
I am so damn proud of being in this province and having the privilege of speaking this language. I can be professional, or I can be casual, I can swear for a minute straight or I can make my speech perfectly clean and formal, but I am always, always badass, because speaking québécois in a eurocentric world is rebellious in itself. I used to be ashamed of the way I spoke because of people like you who think that anything that doesn’t match your fucking made-up ~standard~ is worthless. I refuse to ever feel worthless again because of purists like you. No one will ever bring me down again. I will defend my province to the death because I am badass. Meanwhile, you are a petty, whiny baby with an enormous false sense of importance if you think that anyone gives a shit about what you have to say. My language is beautiful, and you can fuck right off and stay out of the quebec tag.
it makes me laugh when people criticize quebec french and imply that it’s inferior to european dialects, because one of the main features of quebec french is that there is frequent contraction in words and sounds that get deleted, meaning that for speakers of french who aren’t used to it, quebec french is incredibly difficult to understand
quebec french speakers have absolutely no problem understanding other dialects of french and function within a linguistic environment that is objectively very difficult to parse, which leads me to the conclusion - and i’m speaking as a linguist here, as someone who studies language as a profession - that speakers of quebec french are better at french in general than speakers of other french dialects
