GUEST,Joe Lyr Req: Vive la Rose (Emile Benoit) (41) RE: Lyr Req: Vive la Rose (Emile Benoit) 11 Dec 12


I'm a little late on this, but 'la rose de les villages" may have the same significance as 'the star of the county down", simply a term applied to somebody of striking beauty. Also, the version of French spoken in Newfoundland may have a continuing use of old terms and forms in a similar manner to Acadian French spoken in parts of northern New Brunswick. Certainly the conjugation looks a lot like one of the forms I was taught in grade school way back when, and it's fallen out of usage.
