As Carlos once rightly pointed out, the French love to disagree and debate their divergences. Nothing makes life more exciting than a lively debate. So I’m making this suggestion to Christine, Carlos, and of course anyone else who feels like writing in French Gregg: could we not choose any topic of interest and debate it among ourselves? This way we wouldn’t just be posting transcriptions of other people’s texts, and our exchanges would feel a bit more personal and authentic (and probably with a higher degree of cross-series mutual intelligibility than when transcribing, say, a poem or literary work). Of course, beyond the substance, we could also bring comments and corrections to the form as we go along. What do you all think? Is this a good idea? If it is, maybe English Gregg writers could open anothe thread to do the same?
