Résumé

There is a unique territory in France called ""le Croissant"", which runs along the Massif Central from the west of the Limousin to the east of the Auvergne. To the north, this territory is bordered by the area of the Oïl languages, which includes French, and to the south by the area where Occitan (or langue d'oc) is traditionally spoken.
In 2017, around twenty researchers, most of them from the CNRS, joined together to participate in a multidisciplinary project, the ANR ""Les parlers du Croissant"" (The Crescent Speakers), to document this linguistic heritage before it was too late.
Among them are Nicolas Quint, a researcher at LLACAN, Maximilien Guérin, a post-doctoral researcher, and Amélie Deparis, a PhD student in Romance Linguistics, are working to compile the Crescent languages from as many communes as possible. However, these languages are disappearing as there are fewer and fewer speakers. Time is running out.

This film was made with the support of the ANR project ""Les parlers du Croissant: une approche multidisciplinaire du contact oc-oïl"" (The Crescent Speakers: a multidisciplinary approach to oc-oïl contact).
