Abstract

One notable difference between Standard French and Picard is that, unlike Standard French, which has only et, Picard has two coordinating conjunctions equivalent to the English <i>and:</i> <i>pi</i> and <i>et pi</i>. In this paper, we examine the distribution of the two forms and try to determine whether they are different conjunctions or allomorphs of the same underlying form. Oral and written data from three speakers are analyzed. The picture that emerges reveals a complex interplay of semantic, syntactic, and phonological constraints that we attribute to ongoing grammaticalization.
