greg: >>Non, relis. À mon grand regret je connais Crystal. Et je te confirmes qu'il s'agit d'un marchand de tapis.<<

You regret too much. So according to your new findings, now he's simply a shill, not a dirty shill... who's been in the field for over 40 years. No, you need to reread your drivel because instead of naively asking about Crystal, you're now suggesting there is a conspiracy in the academic world.

greg: >>Ma parole, serais-tu l'enfant caché de David Crystal ?!? <<

He's been lecturing and writing about language and languages long before you were just an afterthought in your father's scrotum.

greg: >>C'est sûr qu'en te répondant je ne fais pas honneur à la logique... <<

As an unwanted love child, you can't help the way you are or think.

Rectangle: carré différent. (2 words!)
We (the french) can say that the french language is more precise than english because we speak both french and english. If one day you (english speakers) learn some french you'll see it!
