DICTIONARY OF SPORT
PROPOSED FOR FRANCE
-France- is to have a dictionary of
sport, an official dictionary, that is, 1
compiled by the-Academy of Spprts.
The terms of sports have as many
cases been borrowed fr$ni the Eng
lish, and, so far. In addition to tak
ing over the word, people have more
or less ventured upon what they'con
ceived to.be the pronunciation. ?
But now that standardization seems
imminent, the question is being ask
ed "Why not 'standardize a French
form of the word?".
Why not do as Madame de Sevigne
did when she was confronted in her
day with bowling green, white "boul
ingrin," and pronounce It as such?
Why waste precious hours in the lost
cause of spelling and pronuncing
"dead heat." "upper cut" and "drive
in the way the English are able to
do, -but the French never at least,
hardly ever? '
. Why, . indeed J The English and
Americans who have appropriated the
French nomenclature of motoring and
aviation without any thought of seem
ing to give either vowel or consonant
its Continental value, unless where
that coincided with the English,
should he the last to complain.
