Damn, I was hoping not post in one of the Appreciation Threads, but I need to now :

FougÃ¨re should be pronounced foo-z(g)heir.
Saint Laurent in YSL should be prounced Sohn (n is nasilised) Loh-rhon.
I think you should take into consideration that there is more than one french.
I am assuming that because L'homme is Canadian, that he is more versed in Quebecquis
french. Some of the prononciation is different.

Exactly. If you were taught french a certain way in growing up ( in school), that is the french you ( he) will know.

I'm sorry, l"homme, but I have to side with Ã©tincelle here. I am a french teacher. If you are french, then you speak and write in a dialect with which I am totally unfamiliar. I would have ignored that observation if you hadn't attacked Ã©tincelle with the words "je pense c'est toi qui ne connait rien" (which is very bad french, by the way)
Keep up the great work with the reviews, though!
Yes, Trufflehunter. You are unfamiliar with L'homme's french. Its different, but still correct
. I hear this debate go on and on at my University between international students all the time.
If you are a french teacher, shouldn't you know about Quebec's french being slightly different ??
I don't mean to pick an argument Trufflehunter, but I just thought that Ã©tincelle and you are being a tad harsh on L'homme.
