True, I've heard that from very uneducated French people (and by
uneducated, I don't mean unschooled. One can even be a professor and yet be
uneducated, some of you gave us examples yesterday :) ). The worst I've

pleasure) is when a friend of mine told me that Basque was merely a dialect
of Spanish. Well, he won't make the same mistake again :) .
