And I have to note in passing that this week's Word Court was basically "Just face it, world, we're called 'Americans'" — le Monde comes to a similar conclusion without having quite so much of that whole ill-informed-American-preaching-to-the-world thing going on. (Couldn't bring myself to blog about it, or even talk to the Missus about it.)
The language blog itself is notable … worth reading, though not worth learning French for (see graphic below). Of course there's also lots of stuff like this:
Lu récemment : “… ce qui tente à prouver…”. Ô saint Pierre (Larousse) et saint Paul (Robert), délivrez-nous de la tentation et tendez-nous un d bien tendre qui n’aurait pas le goût du t !That gripe seems somehow cleverer and less bitchy than the stuff we normally get from American mavens … or maybe just because it's in French?
I can't figure out, though, why in the world they set the whole blog in boldface — at least in the two browsers I've checked it out in.
