lang: FR>FR
kwd: Dictionnaire des identités culturelles de la francophonie
src: Maison de la Francité, Brussels, Belgium
La francophonie, du local à l'international
Pour comprendre le système local des identités concurrentes, le citoyen du monde francophone bénéficie d'un atout enviable : la comparaison directe avec d'autres systèmes que rend possible sans médiation le partage de la langue française. Bien plus, cette langue commune favorise des liens culturels qui, plus ou moins profonds selon les cas, tissent entre les pays de la Francophonie sinon une communauté sociologique, du moins une communauté intellectuelle autorisant la migration des appellations identitaires (et de leur contenu d'origine dans une certaine mesure seulement). Le Québec a ainsi largement informé l'actuelle problématique du "multiculturalisme" dans les pays francophones d'Europe.
cmt: Only too proud that my native Québec is mentioned by Belgians as a'catalyst' for such multicultural issues. Highly informative.

kwd:     style guide, The Economist
cmt:     A new, revised version of The Economist's best-selling style guide is now online. It gives general advice on writing, points out common errors and clichés, and offers guidance on consistent use of punctuation, abbreviations and capital letters. It's also rather amusing-and an invaluable companion for everyone who wants to communicate with the clarity, style and precision for which The Economist is renowned. However, someone already noticed that in the one full sentence that appears on the main frame on this page, they break their own rule (which informs, that defines)!
