It wasn't where I lived in Terrebonne Parish and folks didn't talk about that as one of the changes (the big change was from Latin). But if anybody knows, Barry Ancelet does. He's at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (dept. of foreign languages), Lafayette, Louisiana. Also at the same university is Marcia Gaudet, who I'm sure could answer the same question. I don't know their email addresses offhand, but I'll try and get to forward them to you or you might try fingering them. Another contact person is Ray Brassieur. Sorry I don't have the addresses at hand. shana > > I imagine that somewhere in Cajun territory mass is said in French. Is it > said in something like standard French or in Cajun French?
