Description While most gynolects and pedolects have now practically disappeared from the French language and the use of offensive language (insults and verbal abuse) has become increasingly common, new types of taboos have emerged. On the one hand, religious fundamentalists still rise against what they perceive as blasphemy – but they remain a minority. On the other hand, the general public has grown much more sensitive to macho, racist, anti-Semitic and revisionist statements. These provoke indignant reactions and lead to lawsuits and convictions.
La (quasi)disparition des gynolectes et pédolectes et le développement des incivilités (insultes et propos violents) n’empêchent pas l’apparition de nouveaux domaines tabous en français. Les fondamentalistes religieux s’insurgent encore contre ce qu’ils considèrent être des blasphèmes mais il sont minoritaires. En revanche les propos machistes, racistes, antisémites, négationnistes provoquent des réactions indignées de la part de la population, beaucoup plus sensible à ces sujets, et font l’objet de poursuites devant les tribunaux et de condamnations.
