Where were you when French was kill ?
Same happened to Greek some forty years ago, namely the polytonic system was completely abandoned.
This will have an effect on the cultural and linguistic connotations of words, which I find pretty sad.
french is dead since the emergence of the middle class by the liberals.
ß is the dumbest letter imaginable. Had a teacher that insisted on pronouncing it differently as ss in every word that existed. And then she'd written a test with half of it consisting of ss in ß words, made my life a hell.
Got one up on that german bitch. Was cheating at a test of hers with cheatsheet up my sleeve, she thought she got me, but never found my cheatsheet that I safely dropped and stepped on.
I never post on /lit/ but I saw that and I'm honestly disgusted. It's called "promoting the dumb", people shall not make any effort to learn? Why? Becuz its 2 konplicated olol. And all of this for what? So that it can simplify the life of all those fucking immigrants that invaded us (/pol/ thingy but I had to say it because the reform that had been made 26 years ago by some douches were implemented only after the big scale Syria immigration. Ma chère langue natale a honte et elle demande satisfaction.
I'm disgusted by my own country. Languages don't evolve by using grammatical Diktats, languages evolve on their own. Trying to force this shit is simply the first step to dumbing everything down to stupidity. What shall it be next? Put words in a blender, mix for 10 seconds and we make a new word with whatever remains?

>Vive la France !
>Le syndicat étudiant UNI et l’observatoire des programmes scolaires ont même publié un communiqué rageur contre la ministre de l’éducation, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, qui « se croit autoriser [sic] à bouleverser les règles de l’orthographe et de la langue française ».
The modification will affect only textbook for primary school so it'll affect the next generation, which basically is a meme because probably [I'm not even joking] half of it is arabs and blacks.
I live in Canada and don't remember shit about the French I was forced to learn in school (I would have liked to learn it, but the Ontario curriculum is a steaming pile of hot diarrhea).
How is French kill?
>HURRR WE NEED UNNECESSARY SHIT IN OUR LANGUAGE BECAUSE IT MAKES ME FEEL SMARTER BAWWW BAWWWW
You people can't be dumber if you tried
Encore du nivellement vers le bas. En limitant le langage, on limite l'expression des idées et on transforme la langue en une chose simpliste et vulgaire, c'est aussi simple que ça.
1984 pour quand?
Je rappel que seul les pauvres tirent une certaine fierté de l'orthographe abscon (car ils n'ont que cela pour eux)alors que les intellectuels ne venant pas de classe moyenne sont tous en faveur des améliorations.
