La troisième personne du pluriel (indicatif présent) autour de Metz : une révolution paradigmatique

Abstract : The third person plural (P6) indicative present is given a specific treatment in Gallo-Romance varieties in the Metz region : unlike other Lorraine dialects, dialects of this area do not display a vocalic suffix for P6, which implies either that the third person plural is homonymous with the singular, or that it is marked by a particular plural base. Since this situation is exactly the same one as in Modern French (see ils aim-[ent] vs. nousaim-ons, elles finiss-[ent] vs. nous finiss-ons), it will be argued that the Standard has influenced dialectal varieties around Metz, a city that has long played a pivotal role in conveying both Standard and dialectal forms in the region.
