French Institution Bans English Words Like 'esports' And 'Streaming'

For centuries now, the Académie Française has basically overseen the entire French language, being responsible for everything from grammar to publishing French dictionaries to acting as the “official authority on the language”.

As The Guardian reports, that has extended this week to a “ban” on the use of certain gaming-adjacent words that are popular not just in English-speaking countries but around the world. The Académie can’t outlaw the use of the words in everyday speech, or even in the media, that’s not within their powers or their intent, but the ban is now “binding on government workers”, which means that when speaking on the topic or preparing papers, French officials need to find different ways of saying words like “esports”.

The words aren't banned from everyday life, but the French government can no longer use them officially

 

 

 

Meanwhile in Québec Canada we can't even get french service at Mcdonald sometime.

Haha, I forgot about this clip. Too bad it cut off his response to "bonjour". "Crazy gibberish!"
