Le P’ti Prinsse — in Nothois.
The Croissant language or dialects of French is a unique and somewhat lesser-known linguistic phenomenon in France. It refers to a transitional area of dialects spoken in a crescent-shaped region between the traditional linguistic zones of the Langue d’Oc and the Langue d’Oïl. The specific dialects within the Croissant area can be quite varied. Some of the notable ones include:
Marchois (spoken in the Marche region, showing a blend of Oïl and Oc characteristics), and Averno-Bourbonnais (have more Occitan influence but also share features with Oïl dialects).
Nothois is a Croissant dialect of the small village of Boscavillot near the town of Noth in the French department “Creuze“ in the Massif Central.
