Le Parler Acadien, or Acadian Speak

le parler acadien

Walter and Honoré LeBlanc with straight faces explaining the origins of the Acadian word “macher”…

I just discovered a very entertaining and very interesting video on the origins of some of our Acadian French words and language. Two enterprising young Acadians, Walter and Honoré LeBlanc put together this 12 minute video. To me, coming from the region, it was hilarious to listen to them. Alot of it is ‘tongue-in-cheek’, so you have to listen closely.

Now to make sure that you understand, this video is about the French language and is in French of course. So, for those of you who are not francophones… sorry.

Check this video out. It’s a hoot!
