Do they know what that means though?


An Anglophone is someone who speaks the English language. As an adjective, it refers to belonging to an English-speaking population especially in a country where two or more languages are spoken. A related term, the Anglosphere, refers to the group of countries that mainly speak English.


Whereas Francophone is someone whose native tongue is French. Oddly enough, there's a third term ... Allophone. This refers to pretty much anyone else who doesn't speak English or French.

Look up the meaning on wikipedia. You'll be surprised. ;)

That pretty much sums it up!

Though, if you were trying to instigate something, it won't work. ;)

Hehe.

You'd be insulting the French members of this board... People like to call me French-Canadian because I reside in Quebec ... But I was born of an Irish/Scottish mother, and an Italian father.

So ... no French in me whatsowhomever!

I don't believe for a second you're a Francophone then. I'm from Belgium, and all the Francophones I have dealt with KNOW they are insulted, have never had any qualms about letting the rest of the world know they are insulted and following that up with a few choice insulting things themselves ;)

Nofi of cours.

BTW: the God phone above, wouldn't that be an allophone, as it's clearly for "american" speakers. (Also j/k).

Oh dear, now I went and pissed of both the americans and the french. I wonder whether they'll agree long enough to come kick my belgian butt? :D
