How much longer is your show at La Maison Gallery up for JC? BTW, does one need to be Franco-Can to have a show there?

The show is up for another week and yes, you must be a francophone. My french is decent, especially when cornered. It helps that my mom is french, which makes me a francophile.

You don't have to be a francophone, but you must be able to communicate in French.

Isn't that what a francophone is?

wolfBoy said...

i can communicate in french, and i'm certainly not a francophone, so no, that's not what a francophone is.

"-ophone" generally refers to one's first language, or a language they are a *native* speaker of.

jc said...

The term franco-phone means french-speaking....sometimes it does refer to a person's first language...but not always.

You are a franco-phone wolfboy. You speak French. bon job buddy.

heh. well, thanks knack, though i'm still not sure i'm a francophone. i'm an anglophone who can communicate in french. more of a "francophile", perhaps. :)

here's what our good friend wiki has to say:

The adjective francophone (alternately Francophone) means French-speaking, typically as primary language, whether referring to individuals, groups, or places. Often, the word is used as a noun to describe a natively French-speaking person.[1][2]

In a narrower sense, the notion of 'francophone' reaches beyond the dictionary definition of "French language speaker". The term specifically refers to people whose cultural background is primarily associated with French language, regardless of ethnic and geographical differences. The francophone culture beyond Europe is the legacy of the French colonial empire and the Belgian colonial empire (Congo, Burundi and Rwanda).
