What kind of words or expressions make your language more sophisticated or less educated? Are there words of certain origins that are preferred for either situation (such as Turkish, French, Greek etc)?

Why is French also λΆˆμ–΄ when other languages are "only" simply the origin country's name + μ–΄?

I heard it's because of Chinese influence, but French in Chinese is ζ³•εœ‹, and the hangul reading of 法 is 법, not 뢈. And even if somehow it's true, why don't the other language follow this rule?

Any natives/linguists/historians can help me understand?

TIL that during the Norman rule of England, the French language influenced English tremendously. Most of it were related to posh topics, notably cuisine. The words 'cow', 'pig', and 'sheep' are of Saxon origin, but the words 'beef', 'pork', and 'mutton' are of French origin. thedailymeal.com/eat/why-…

You have the ability to speak and understand any and all languages fluently, without fail, but only when you're in the country of origin to the language being spoken(for example: chinese will not work in North America, french will not work in Canada, etc.)

French people have valued French language's Latin origin (like in Latin-esque spelling), and French is less similar to Latin than Occitan. But they oppressed Occitan. What do you think about it?

Thank you in advance!

Why are so many English-language military terms of French origin?

It seems like almost every word we use to describe the military comes from the French language. Words like soldier, officer, infantry, army, artillery, pistol, squadron, corps, reconnaissance, terrain, troop, logistics, bivouac, morale, sergeant, lieutenant, colonel, general, admiral - the list goes on. Is there a reason why French continues to dominate the language of warfare, even as part of the English language?

Does anyone know the origin of diacritical remarks in the French language?

I am not 100% sure of their. When looking at earler languages that "aided" in the development of the French language there weren't diacritical marks used. So where do they come from?
