The work done is awesome. I’ll try it because the idea of self-hosting low traffic videos is interesting.

Besides, I can’t stand articles that use the so called écriture inclusive. Either they write in the accepted, standardized version of French or they fork it but don’t call it French.

Sprecaþ ᵹē Englisce? Language does evolve. English used to be a heavily inflected language with 5 grammatical cases and three grammatical genders, very free word order, negative concord, no do-insertion, etc.

And no matter how much AF wants people in France to say "fin de semaine", they won't. A language is defined by the body speaking it, and standards bodies can really only suggest things to them.

Languages evolve all the time, without the creation of a "fork" language.
