    Hi Ron,

    I thought to disregard phenol since it is the common name for hydroxybenzene. I also thought that the IUPAC naming convention would reserve the ending -ol for alcohols. But that was not to be since the IUPAC name for phenol is benzenol. So much for standardization. Best not to overthink some things.

    I've proposed that in a similar exchange we previously had, either here or on the large format forum.

    Are you sure Steve? Didn't Freud say that there's no such thing as a joke?

    Yes, banter is engaged in and used in the language here.

    My French friends are amazed at the pronunciation and grammar of the Quebec French. Many misunderstandings and "quaintness" as the Parisians put it.

    Except that "color" is from Latin, predating the French word from the English got colour.

    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    To the French everyone else is a joke. For many, many years French children were taught in school that only French culture was relevant. Oh how it must hurt them that English has become the lingua franca of the world. A hundred years after Hastings, Norman French families were having to send to France for tutors to teach their children how to speak proper French. Such was the power of the emerging English language.

    To understand why English has replaced French look at the following site for the conjugation of the verb to kiss in French where it is a regular verb. http://www.learn-french-help.com/french-for-kiss.html I shudder to think of the irregular French verbs. English is so elegant in its simplicity.

    They would horrified and not amazed at the French spoken in Louisiana. Laissez les bons temps rouler. There are other variants that do even more violence to the French language.

    Jerry, the French are wonderful if you just try to speak their language. They become polite and courteous at just the effort. But, i managed many a bent nose before I could remember that tirez meant pull and pousez meant push!

    I am part French and still have relatives in France. I gave the first part of my last talk at Chalon in my fractured French and then apologized and continued in English. They appreciated the effort.
