Re(6): plain English?

Slightly off topic, I would reply to Lyndsay that the French Academy has rigorously attempted to keep the French language free of foreign intrusions and to preserve a form of French that it upholds as official and correct. Over many years of living in France and teaching French, I have seen the language fighting a losing battle, especially with the young, against the ever-expanding English language with all its IMHOs LOLs and so on. You have to be insane to insist on calling something 'l'informatique' when a term like IT exists.
