Linguistic description of Quebecoise pronunciation of French. The site provides audio recordings, contrastive analysis (with standard French), geographic and sociolinguistic study of each phenomenon, and extensive bibliography on each subject.
A wonderful resource for university students and for language instructors of all levels who are interested in the difference between the Parisian and the Quebecois accent. A variety of words are read first in Parisian French, then in Quebecois French, increasing the ease of comparison.
Some of the phonetic transcriptions do not appear correctly using the Firefox web browser on a MAC.

I use Phono in a Phonology course in which the students learn phonetic transcription and how to describe pronunciation and variation among French-speaking peoples. The students are assigned 5-6 phonetic phenomena to listen to each week. Phono offers the possibility to compare single sounds as they are pronunced in standard and quebecois French. I would recommend using Phono in class first, before assigning it as homework. It should also be introduced in the course after the students have received a good training in phonetic transcription and description.
The website requires using SIL fonts but these will work best with Explorer on PC and Mac. Some fonts do not appear correctly with Mac running Netscape.
