* In “Slow Bern” (February 20th) you describe Bernie Sanders as “rickety”, have actually him speaking in a “croaky New York whine” while providing a “crotchety” speech to pupils at Morehouse university. Those of us in Vermont that have known Mr Sanders because the very very early 1980’s might explain their as energetic (he keeps up with those half their age throughout the rigors of a nationwide campaign), bereft associated with the soothing accents of brand new presenters, and principled and trustworthy.

Le ou la?

We completely enjoyed your present Johnson line about the demise associated with circumflex (February 27th). It amazes me personally that a French-speaker that is well-educated can inform from a couple of lines of an e-mail ( or even a tweet) if the transmitter can be an alumnus of Grande Г‰cole or perhaps a col bleu. I realize why the Gallic literati would like to cling for this surreptitious grammatical key handshake. (unless you’re a published author, effective at showing mastery for the penned word. while you have actually formerly noted, to become an elected official in France is practically unimaginable)

For some body for whom French is certainly not their mother tongue, I would personally humbly recommend into the French Academy that while dropping the superfluous “i” in oignon and scrapping the always-elusive-to-find-on-the-keyboard circumflex, are an excellent start, they ought to rather begin with the lower-hanging good fresh fresh fresh fruit of irrational genders of nouns. While i will be persuaded associated with the logic that France is inherently feminine and deserves the definitive article “la”, and Canada is obviously a nation full of Mounties and masculinity, hence “le” Canada, with what realm of undue complexity would the breast while the vagina, the sine qua non of femininity, both be nom masculin?
