UMoncton unveils Centre de recherche sur la langue en Acadie


Université de Moncton has renamed its centre for research on language. The Centre de recherche en linguistique appliquée has now become the Centre de recherche sur la langue en Acadie, a name which reflects the adoption of a new mandate focused on studying how French is situated in Acadia. The name shares the same acronym as the previous name, which supports the continuity of the centre while emphasizing its renewal. UMoncton Professor Isabelle Violette said that the language centre’s new name affirms Acadia’s importance and links the centre with Acadian studies.
