French and Sango in the Central African Republic

Abstract

Standard French, the official language of the Central African Republic, is being acquired in a form close to that of Metropolitan France. On the other hand, Sango, the national language, is far from being standardized, in spite of steps taken to codify it, and there has not yet emerged a "correct" form of the langauge.
