"Franglais" is a term used here in Maritime Canada. Speaking mostly Acadian French (and Shaque (slang) - there are other spellings) mixed with English as a second language is commonplace for a third of the population of the area I live in. It's simply history. And it's a vibrant and rich, sometimes sad, history of which we are all proud. The mix is varied and enriches us all.
