Thanks, gnu. You've posted a lot of useful information.
After I posted my question I had a look at the Gaspé site and think I understood most of it. So I'm okay if I'm reading it. If it looks as if we'll have time to go to Quebec, I'll, try to find a phrase book, since I won't have access to Google when I'm trying to shop or book accommodation. Although I might as well try speaking to people there in English. I'm sure they'd never figure out my mispronunciations.
