I had to credit LL as I spotted this before I visited your blog – LL is before LH in my RSS reader! Jim January 30, 2008 at 5:25 pm Eek! Looking at the simplified map of European language distribution, I see that Gascon (even under the guise of Franco-Provencal) has disappeared and there’s no Occitan east of Languedoc – very unlikely I think. The bits of Italy (Aoasta etc) that are usually counted as Franco-Provencal are now showing as Francophone – again doubtful. Maybe it’s my eyesight, but does it show Fruilia as a Romantsch speaking region? Not that it matters of course – the map is even more fun to argue about. Comments are closed.
