RE: [Survey] HP users around the world
Look like HP and TI calculators user demography mostly at Norh/South America, Australia and throughout Europe.
Others like Casio, Sharp, or other Japan make models are mostly at Asia and Africa zone.

I'm a US citizen and live in Thailand. Most people here use Casio and very rare to see any HP or TI calculator.

Here in Italy, Casios are by far the most used, with Sharp following. Any other brand is much harder to get by, expecially HP.

Hello Salvo,
I am a Quebecer or a French Canadian if you want.
My understanding is that the French dialect spoken here is a descendant of the French language that was spoken in the north-western part of France in 1700.
References: History of Quebec and History of Quebec French.
Best regards,
Sylvain

Bonjour Salvo,
Je suis un Québécois ou un Canadien français si vous voulez.
Me compréhension, est que le Français usuellement parlé ici, est un dérivé de la langue française qui était parlé dans le nord-ouest de la France en 1700.

Cordialement,
Sylvain

RE: [Survey] HP users around the world
@salvomic

Quebecois is the French spoken in Canada’s Quebec province by nearly 8 million people. There are other forms of French in Canada in New Brunswick. Because of the British victory in 1763, for nearly 2 centuries Quebecois evolved differently and independantly from the France French. As a result the spoken language is quite different from standard French. Different words, common words with different meanings, different anglicism. On some aspects, it looks like old French.
But written Quebecois is French.

The accent is also very different. As (we in France) are not used to ear it it is difficult to understand. Interviewed people are often subtitlted ! But strangely, on the radio or television it is very intellegible. Before I went to Quebec for vacation ten years ago, in my whole lifetime I met only 3 Quebecois (2 of them in Rome !). This to say we don’t have a close relationship. By the way, they don’t like French people. But who do ? Smile

Bonjour Sylvain,
Merci beaucoup pour l'explication. Je lis les links que vous suggérez. Un de mes chers amis, ici en Sicile, est né à Toronto et a vécu au Canada 20 ans, je lui poserai également des questions sur cette langue.

I'm always curious about the languages of the World and about philological explanation of their evolution. Quebecois is interesting, I'll read more about it.

Very interesting!
Since many years I have spoke often with Canadian OM (radio amateurs), like also with French ones, in English or French and never I supposed that difference with the French... So, it is like American vs English evolution, I suppose...
Or also like a form of French "patois" (I know this is very particularly related to France however) Smile

My friend, here, is a man that lived in Canada and he prefers to speak English (not French) but he likes much French people (especially women, hi)...
But why they shouldn't like French people? Smile

That linguistic evolution has not paragons with Italian language: apart from very few terms, Swiss people that speak Italian understands our language and we understand their. *

Mark Twain said that an American and an Englishman speak the same language but they don't understand reciprocally. I would hope a Canadian and a Frenchman would like at least try to understand reciprocally...

EDIT:
* when we speak Italian. Not when we, inside Italy, speak various dialects: often we cannot understand also amidst Italian fellows. Sicilian or Sardo or Friulan are in many parts so different of Milanese or Toscano. We have sure too many dialects, however lesser and lesser spoken among young people...
