@Albuquerque,
I remember how annoyed Charles de Gaulle was over 'americanized' terms creeping into proper French. I think we all get a little weary of over-used phrases and things that sometime sound careless to our ears.

@Walter Hinteler,
I can imagine what a glorious slow burn De Gaulle would pull if he heard George Bush say the French don't have a word for entrepreneur.
