Anti-glottophobia Law

France’s National Assembly passed a law banning glottophobia- discrimination based on accents. The term ‘la glottophobie’ was coined by the French to refer to a form of discrimination based on intonation or tone associated with an accent. The law seeks to make linguistic discrimination a criminal offence alongside racism, sexism and other forms of outlawed bigotry.
