French Phrases

Department of French Studies. A number of resources exist for those looking for Cajun French vocabulary, but all of them pose problems for LSU students in Cajun French because they are either too regional in scope, too inconsistent in spelling, or too theoretical in approach for beginning students. Therefore, in response to our students' expressed need for a basic vocabulary resource, we are in the process of building a glossary based upon the units covered in Cajun French , , , , and at LSU. We have tried to make the entries and explanations as clear and straightforward as possible. We'll be adding entries on a regular basis as we need them for courses, so please check with us again. Also, if you are a native speaker of Cajun French and have entries to suggest or comments about the entries already here, feel free to contact us at alafleu lsu.
