Elvis Gratton 43 Pierrette Thibault’s 1993 definition of sociolinguistics in the Dictionnaire critique de la communication describes the Labovian approach to linguistics, that is, acknowledging a community as having its own communication system subject to variations according to constructed identities (1993, 286). The variation of French represented by jouale is an example of the way language works in the Elvis Gratton films to draw in particular listeners and identify a specific group in Québec.
