Re: LibertÚ, EgalitÚ, FraternitÚ pour tous
I am a native born Briton educated in Scotland and the United States.My
first language is English, French my third. A Walloon is not French-speaking
Belgian. A Walloon speaks Walloon, the language is a member of the romance
languages family and of the gallo-roman or "o´l" subgroup.
The 1st Duke of Wellington, when he was Prime Minster was told that he was
an Irishman being born in Ireland remarked "If I was born in a stable would
that make me a horse." Living in France does not make me a Frenchman.
Sherlock flunked this course!
