More About Cajun Vocabulation by Gordon J. Voisin
 
 
 
Overview

With each generation and with each passing day, we grow closer to losing a key part of our nation's unique heritage-the Cajun French language. Unless a concerted effort is made to preserve the language, this rich and vibrant culture will soon be relegated to the back pages of history. "Cajun Vocabulation" is one such labor of love-one man's attempt to preserve the unique heritage of his South Louisiana home.

"Cajun Vocabulation" is a dictionary and pronunciation guide for one of the major dialects of Cajun French. Author Gordon J. Voisin interviewed more than one hundred native speakers in order to create this unique cultural artifact. He not only presents the basics of the language; he does so without sacrificing any of the zest and humor for which Cajuns are famous. The words are written phonetically, so even those with little knowledge of Cajun French will quickly learn to approximate its unique sound.

Engage with a vital and colorful part of American heritage with "Cajun Vocabulation."
