@Walter Hinteler,
No, it says Northern France . Perhaps YOU are looking at it upside down...

Quote:
Langue d'oïl

In the singular, Langue d'oïl refers to the mutually intelligible linguistic variants of romana lingua spoken since the 9th century in northern France and southern Belgium (Wallonia), since the 10th century in the Channel Islands, and between the 11th and 14th centuries in England (the Anglo-Norman language). Langue d'oïl, the term itself, has been used in the singular since the 12th century to denote this ancient linguistic grouping as a whole.With these qualifiers, langue d'oïl sometimes is used to mean the same as Old French (see History below)
(emphasis mine)

This has no official recognition in France, only in Belgium . How far north do you want to go because you have left France.

@Ionus,
I've had enough of you too. You are not really a liar because you are far too stupid to understand what you speak of.

In France, following the Constitution française, no other than French is is officially recognised.

Have a nice day!

Note that it is in English, the language of those who continually save France .

The elderly American gentleman arrived in Paris by plane. At
French Customs, he fumbled for his passport.

"You 'ave been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer
asked sarcastically.

The old gent admitted that he had been to France previously.

"Zen, you should know enough to 'ave your passport ready for
inspection."

The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to
show it."

"Impossible. You Americans alwayz 'ave to show your passports on
arrival in France!"

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he
quietly explained, "Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach in
'44, I couldn't find any Frenchmen to show it to."

This is in response to http://able2know.org/topic/304831-10#post-6081173
(the discussion was a tangent from that thread)

Okay so you did better economically last year... Let's see how far that goes. In any case the two economies are quite similar in size.

you were the one who started a thread about how English is almost all French and got very upset when you were proven wrong.

1. I did NOT start a thread about that, it was in some Christmas thread.
2. I did NOT say English was mostly French, just that it was HALF French.
3. I was NOT proven wrong, you were. In fact I convincingly proved that 41% of the 10,000 most frequently used English words are of French origin. That's not half but it's pretty close, and far ahead of any other origin such as German.
3. And YOU got pissed off as a result, NOT I.

You have a way to never understand what is being said, it's funny.

@Olivier5,
I trust those are aggregate figures?

@lmur,
That's not scientific data, more likely to be from some internet survey.
