About the French Language

French is a Romance code initially spoken in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Switzerland, and now by about 350 million persons all over the world as either a native or perhaps a 2nd code, with noticeable populations in 54 nations. French is a descendant of the Latin of the Roman Empire, because are languages such because Spanish, Italian, Catalan, Romanian, and Portuguese. Its development was furthermore influenced by the native Celtic languages of Roman Gaul and by the Germanic code of the post-Roman Frankish invaders. It is an official code in 31 nations, almost all of which shape what exactly is called in French La Francophonie, the community of French-speaking countries. It is an official code of all United Nations agencies and a big amount of global organisations.

Per the Constitution of France, French has been the official code since 1992 (although past legal texts have created it official since 1539, see ordinance of Villers-Cotterêts). France mandates the utilization of French in official government magazines, public knowledge outside of certain instances (though these dispositions are usually ignored) and legal contracts; advertisements should bear a translation of foreign words. Additionally to French, there are equally a range of territorial languages. France has finalized the European Charter for Regional Languages but has not ratified it since that would go from the 1958 Constitution.

The majority of French words derive from Vulgar Latin or were designed from Latin or Greek origins. There are usually pairs of words, 1 shape being common (noun) and the additional 1 savant (adjective), both originating from Latin. Example:

* brother: frère / fraternel < from Latin FRATER
* finger: doigt / digital < from Latin DIGITVS
* faith: foi / fidèle < from Latin FIDES
* cold: froid / frigide < from Latin FRIGIDVS
* eye: œil / oculaire < from Latin OCVLVS
* inhabitants of the city Saint-Étienne are called Stéphanois

The last illustration, Saint-Étienne/Stéphanois, illustrates popular practice for gentilics throughout France. In some examples there is a widespread word from "vulgar" Latin along with a more savant word from classical Latin or Greek. The French words that have developed from Latin are less recognisable than Italian words of Latin origin because as French developed into a separate code from Vulgar Latin, the unstressed final syllable of countless words was dropped or elided into the following word. The French counting program is partially vigesimal: twenty (vingt) is chosen as a base amount in the names of numbers from 80–99. The French word for eighty, for illustration, is quatre-vingts, which virtually signifies "4 twenties", and soixante-quinze (virtually "sixty-fifteen") indicating 75. This reform arose after the French Revolution to unify the different counting program (largely vigesimal close to the coastline, due to Celtic [via Basque] and Viking influence). This program is similar to the archaic English employ of score, as in "fourscore and seven" , or "threescore and ten". Belgian French and Swiss French are different in this regard. In Belgium and Switzerland 70 and 90 are septante and nonante. In Switzerland, depending found on the localized dialect, 80 is quatre-vingts (Geneva, Neuchâtel, Jura) or huitante (Vaud, Valais, Fribourg). Octante had been selected in Switzerland in the past, but is today considered archaic. In Belgium, nevertheless, quatre-vingts is universally selected.
