“Glottophobia”, a word recently coined by a French linguist to describe discrimination based on pronunciation and tone, needed to discouraged by law, she said.

Life really is becoming more and more like scenes that could have been Monty Python sketches, but scenes that couldn’t be made today. “I’m French. Why do think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king?”

Now go away, or I will taunt you a second time.
