L is one of the consonants that gets pronounced at the end of words in French (it's the consonants in careful). It'd be closer to faux-toil.

An I before an L can do funny things in French - often it makes the L sound like a Y sometimes.

French pronunciation is reasonably consistent, certainly more so than English. The problem is that they don't actually speak the French that is taught...they slur and shorten and change the way the words sound so much that in some regions it is almost unintelligible.

"Oui" in Parisian French sounds like a duck quacking.

119 102 The French term "Poilu" means hairy. It was a term given to the French soldiers in World War I who wore facial hair -- especially the infantry."

It wasn't just facial hair; it referred generally to the fact that whe the army was out campaigning, they had no personal hygiene (to put it nicely) of any kind.

For me, one of the best films I think was made in any language is "Rules of the Game", by Jean Renoir, made in France in 1939. Among other things, this was the movie that inspired Julian Fellowes to create Gosford Park and it's offspring, Downton Abbey. Rules of the Game created that genre, but it has a depth to it that none of those later films did. Although parts of it can be quite comical, there is an incredible sadness hanging over it as you realize that *everyone*, more or less, knows what's coming. And yet they just play games and amuse themselves and wait for it to come, while doing nothing to prepare.

And again, Renoir made this in 1939.

Norwegian and Danish used to be the same language, when they were part of the same country. They broke apart about the time of the Napoleonic wars, I think. I had a Danish friend who linked me a video popular in both those countries, made by a Norwegian. He demonstrated that modern Danish is simply what Norwegian sounds like when spoken by someone who's incredibly drunk.

Wray Admits The FBI Never Investigated Brett Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Tips The investigation was a fraud. The FBI collected the tips and then handed them to Trump as he ran the “investigation” into his Supreme Court nominee. If it chose to do so, the Senate could open an investigation into the sham investigation and the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

MFer. This is why I despise the FBI. They were never an objective criminal agency. They just supported Republicans and their causes because it made life easier for them.

They wanted Kavanaugh in for their assault on RvW. They got what they wanted. And now Roe is trashed. And now the people (even a festering turd of a state like Kansas!) are pushing back.

Some sort of legitimacy needs to be installed. IMO, 3 seats were stolen!

Haakon VII (born Prince Carl of Denmark; 3 August 1872 - 21 September 1957) was the King of Norway from November 1905 until his death in September 1957.

Originally a Danish prince, he was born in Copenhagen as the son of the future Frederick VIII of Denmark and Louise of Sweden. Prince Carl was educated at the Royal Danish Naval Academy and served in the Royal Danish Navy. After the 1905 dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway, Prince Carl was offered the Norwegian crown. Following a November plebiscite, he accepted the offer and was formally elected King of Norway by the Storting. He took the Old Norse name Haakon and ascended to the throne as Haakon VII, becoming the first independent Norwegian monarch since 1387.[1]

266 2 of 2 about the plebiscite:

A referendum on retaining the monarchy or becoming a republic was held in Norway on 12 and 13 November 1905.[1] Voters were asked whether they approved of the Storting's decision to authorise the government to make the offer of the throne of the newly self-ruling country. The Storting had wanted to offer the throne to Prince Carl of Denmark, but the prince insisted that the Norwegian people have a chance to decide whether they wanted to retain a monarchy.[2]

The proposal was approved by 78.9% of voters.[3] Following the referendum, the Storting formally offered the throne to Carl on 18 November; Carl accepted, assuming the throne as King Haakon VII. The new royal family arrived in Norway on 25 November. King Haakon and Queen Maud were crowned in a ceremony in Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim on 22 June 1906.[4] Haakon became Norway's first separate monarch in 518 years.

When I lived in France that is what struck me. Didn’t matter the time of day or the place, everyone would look good. Men and women. But especially women, hair done, makeup, etc. I was the dirty American slob at the coffee shop, having Theon on a pair of shorts and t shirt lol.

That's how I was sure the fix was in in 2020, because it made no sense for them to be holding the "campaign" they were, unless the fraud was so massive they knew they could win even if only 1% voted for them.
Lately what's been disturbing me is the abortion vote in Kansas.

Seriously why? If you would never get an abortion, there must be a reason, so tease that logic out. If you think 'rona is not a serious danger, then why coddle those who ignore every other possible infectious disease but freak out over 'rona.

James's first adventure in the love department, we're told, was in Paris when he was about 16, resulting "in the loss, nearly simultaneous, of his virginity and his notecase." (In John Pearson's clever Authorized Biography, he fills in the story: It was a beautiful older Parisian madam who took a fancy to the young Bond and bought him the 1933 Bentley. And the affair also resulted in the famous scar on his cheek.)

The lingo spoken in Toscana (not just Firenze) is strange. They tend to not pronounce the hard C sound (the K in English) and put in an H sound instead. Of course Italy is full of dialects. Almost every town has its own, a consequence of the country having been a bunch of city-states for centuries. Sicilians and Sardinians are almost unintelligible. Torinese is very Frenchie. Veneziano I don't understand at all.

419 As a Roman I beg to differ.
The lingo spoken in Toscana (not just Firenze) is strange. They tend to not pronounce the hard C sound (the K in English) and put in an H sound instead. Of course Italy is full of dialects. Almost every town has its own, a consequence of the country having been a bunch of city-states for centuries. Sicilians and Sardinians are almost unintelligible. Torinese is very Frenchie. Veneziano I don't understand at all.
The Tuscany Italian is strange in that they tend not to pronounce the H sound.

If he started off talking in Italian right out of the gate they were like eh Nablidon.

My friend sent me a youtube of about ten main Italian dialects being spoken. I was most familiar with what they named the "central Italian" speech, but could understand quite a few of the others. But Emilia-Romagna was way out there. And the one on the Swiss border was understandable only because of my knowledge of French.

Our home town dialect is a mish mosh of Italian, Provencal, some Germanic grunts and whatever evolved in the little mountain town that has no correspondence with anything.

458 My friend sent me a youtube of about ten main Italian dialects being spoken. I was most familiar with what they named the "central Italian" speech, but could understand quite a few of the others. But Emilia-Romagna was way out there. And the one on the Swiss border was understandable only because of my knowledge of French.

Our home town dialect is a mish mosh of Italian, Provencal, some Germanic grunts and whatever evolved in the little mountain town that has no correspondence with anything.

Years ago we did a house renovation for an italian family. I have noooo clue what italian this dude was speaking, but it sounded like frigging chinese. It was a shit ton of 1 and 2 syllable words. My father had no clue what he was saying. The dude tells my father it was some type of gutter dialect.

Posted by: BourbonChicken at August 05, 2022

Fleming wrote more than 6. You mean the novels that formed the "basis" for the first 6 movies?

Doctor No and From Russia With Love, and to a lesser extent Goldfinger, followed the novels pretty well. After that the producers began to go off the rails. FRWL is particularly close to IF's vision of Bond.

That's only part of the bigger issue. If this was me or you the local prosecutor would charge you with every violation they can dream up. And they wouldn't care if they could prove any of it know you're going to plead out to a DWI and only a DWI and move on.
