Mods, can we get our own 'I Loathe Everything (en français)' board?

The Dutch have theirs and there are quite a few francophones on ILX, so it's only fair.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:13 (one month ago) link

would it all be in french!?! (although I could use the practice.)

Yerac, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:14 (one month ago) link

That's what I was thinking, yes, but it was pomenitul's idea so I defer to him.

he only thing I m good at in french is talking about food. And asking where the rubbish bin is.

Moi j’m’en fous

It would be primarily in French, yeah, but anyone should be allowed to chime in English if they want to discuss stuff related to France or francophone culture(s) in general.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:23 (one month ago) link

J'approuve.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:31 (one month ago) link

The ILX Marketplace board I created in 2011 went nowhere, with no posts in the last five years. I'd be happy for it to be renamed Je Déteste Tout and ceremoniously presented to ILX francophones. Waiting to hear from other mods and stet to see if there are any objections.

Manfred Hemming-Hawing (WmC), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:31 (one month ago) link

Je déteste tout, please. Only the 'J' should be uppercase.

There's also a case to be made for 'Je conspue tout'.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:35 (one month ago) link

On verra.

Ask Heavy Manners (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:40 (one month ago) link

I'll take both of those statements as signs of enthusiastic approval.

Is there a trick to typing accents in Chrome?

jmm, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:48 (one month ago) link

If you have a Mac, just hold the key down.

All along there is the sound of feedback (Sund4r), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:52 (one month ago) link

I don't know if it's Mac-specific or not, but press and hold the letter you want accented, and a small popup menu will give you numbered options. xp

Manfred Hemming-Hawing (WmC), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:52 (one month ago) link

Otherwise, you should be able to switch your keyboard to "Canadian - French". Idk about other Windows shortcuts.

une bonne idée

rob, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:54 (one month ago) link

Ah, thanks. I have a PC, but I found a Chrome extension which does the same thing.

ogmor, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 13:56 (one month ago) link

j'utilise le clavier « U.S. International - PC » en mac pour faire facilement les accents : on appuie « option - e » pour réaliser les accents aigus par exemple

L'assie (Euler), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 14:05 (one month ago) link

je crois que le même clavier est disponible, en fait par défaut, dans un pc

L'assie (Euler), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 14:07 (one month ago) link

Le clavier canadien multilingue standard est le plus équilibré, à mon sens. Il est doté de toutes les touches dont on a besoin pour écrire en français mais n'empiète pas sur la saisie en anglais (c'est une sorte de QWERTY à rallonge, si l'on veut).

les claviers azerty sont nuls

L'assie (Euler), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 14:18 (one month ago) link

C'est vraiment l'horreur. Et je n'en vois pas non plus l'intérêt d'un point de vue dactylographique, à moins que ce ne soit une manière détournée de protéger l'« exception culturelle » française. À part la Belgique, aucun autre pays francophone n'emploie cette disposition (du moins à ma connaissance).

pomenitul, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 14:32 (one month ago) link

J'ai essayé quelques claviers, et je peux faire des accents en Word et Outlook (ctrl + ' + e = é), mais ça ne marche pas en Chrome. Je ne sais pas pourquoi. De toute façon, j'ai trouvé un autre moyen.

jmm, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 14:39 (one month ago) link

omg about the holding down a letter to get the accent. I never knew. I am such a lâzy bítch.

Yerac, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 18:17 (one month ago) link

If no one objects to a recycled board instead of a new board, I'll go ahead. Je déteste tout, or J'aime tout, or something else?

Manfred Hemming-Hawing (WmC), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 18:26 (one month ago) link

I'm cool with 'Je déteste tout'. What do the others think?

pomenitul, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 19:04 (one month ago) link

Mdr @ je déteste tout.
J’arrive !

OK, stet has requested that I do it as a new board rather than rename an unused board, so there go my plans for turning I Love Metal (last post 8 yrs ago) into I Love Ambient. New board momentarily.

Manfred Hemming-Hawing (WmC), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 20:04 (one month ago) link

Temp board description - "les francophones s'unissent," but I'm sure y'all can do better.

Manfred Hemming-Hawing (WmC), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 20:11 (one month ago) link

Many thanks, WmC!

pomenitul, Tuesday, 16 July 2019 20:13 (one month ago) link

This is great news! Because where else am I going to flog my Barenaked Ladies cds other than on the ILX marketplace?

Mais non, this is great. I'll prob be lurking mostly brushing up on my French.

lol, when I auto- translate the new thread, ILE in the links to other boards turns to ISLAND, which makes sense, but Jdt Answers turns to Judith Answers.

^^^ frequently used French word that I don't really get

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 00:52 (one month ago) link

afaik literally it’s “therefore” (plus similar conjunctions) but in usage it’s like how English speakers use “so” as in “so what are we doing tonight?”

rob, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 00:55 (one month ago) link

I think I usually use it to mean "therefore". In the Ottawa area, I think you can just say "so" for the second meaning you give but it's def a second language for me donc ...

I'm very happy to see this board. I've been self-learning quite a lot the past year so will be doing some heavy lurking over there.

I overuse donc and ouias because I want people to think I am thinking really hard when I just have no clue what to say.

Yerac, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 14:11 (one month ago) link

I should probably throw in some "alors..."

Je sais que nous, le belges, ont azerty. Mais ca existe dans autre pays? (Mon francais est vraiement horrible.)

Je sais trop dans quel sujet publier ça mais voilà: https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/new-zealand/2019-04-01/global-language-hatred-french

Je pense que c'est SLM (sur la monnaie) et me fait bien peur pour l'avenir de la francophonie.

Haha, c’est vraiment le pire sujet pour discusser ca, mea culpa.

Van Horn Street, Wednesday, 7 August 2019 18:07 (two weeks ago) link

L'ironie est peut-être malheureux que le nom de notre babillard est « Je déteste tout » mais celui serait peut-être un bon sujet pour un fil là-bas?

All along there is the sound of feedback (Sund4r), Wednesday, 7 August 2019 18:23 (two weeks ago) link
