Parliamentary terminology was francized (6) and the Legislative Assembly was renamed the "National Assembly.
Hence, the overall result was a net gain of merely 4,000 persons for French; a net gain of 99,000 anglicized allophones and francophones for English; and a total net loss for other languages of 103,000 anglicized or francized allophones.
Furthermore, most francized allophones in Quebec were of Italian mother tongue, and the new generation of italophones in Montreal were being schooled in English.
At the same time, French just as suddenly shows a net gain of 66,000 francized allophones in Quebec (the new questionnaire reduced net shift between French and English in Quebec to a few thousand cases).
However, the contribution of 89,000 francized allophones (of all ages) falls far short of eliminating the francophone intergenerational shortfall which, after the benefit to be gained from this francization has been drawn,(16) remains of the order of 120,000 children (Table 1 shows 747,000 French mother-tongue children aged 0 to 9 in Quebec in 1996, as against 865,000 young adults aged 25 to 34).
