In the same vein...and in another îlangue╣...you should hear some French
natives (like me) talk about îles Canadiens╣ and their îbastard╣ French...
Remember you╣re always a peasant for somebody else...at the socio-linguists
In any case I certainly have watched several French Canadian movies with the
subtitles to make sure I got it...and I can say the same thing for some
îEnglish╣ films with lots of slang/accents...etc...and I don╣t exactly understand what the whole fuss is about...or why ever putting the subtitles for kids in school would be a question...
Maybe, I missed a meeting...
