Boontling, and foreign words in Quebec (link)

I’ve read two interesting language-related articles. The first article is about Boontling, a dialect of English from Boonville, California. Unfortunately, it is slowly disappearing as the younger generation shows no interest in learning it. The other article is about Quebec, where the government has gone a bit far in making sure French is the dominant language. The offending words are foods that have foreign names.
