Abstract : This paper proposes a systematic, comparative and analytical survey of the correspondences between regionalisms in New Caledonia on the one hand, and in North-America (Laurentian, Acadian and Cajun French) and the Antilles (French and Creole) on the other. It identifies a number of archaisms but also a set of common innovations, and specifically deals with vulgarisms that have undergone reallocation processes in overseas varieties. In conclusion, New Caledonia French appears to be the "last frontier" of a former colonial empire populated by expatriates who have built a norm of their own, far from the normative weight of the metropolis.
