  • Publication type: Article from a collective work

  • Abstract: This chapter examines from a user-based perspective the different formal and structural connections between language use and representation, social inscription and spatial anchoring of the “old” French-speaking bourgeoisie with Flemish roots in contrast to “newer” French speakers of Ghent, whose globalised French in the context of super-diversity contributes to the construction and consolidation of collective “minority” identities, which are marked by what we call conventionalised heteroglossia.
