The Office Québécois de la Langue Française (OQLF), lovingly labeled the “language police” by most folk, have added a new word to their dictionary. If you are someone with a certain affinity towards food, you can no longer call yourself a “foodie.” In the eyes of the OQLF, you must be a “cuisinomane.” While we think the language police in Quebec are doing a top notch job of…preserving Quebecois culture or something, we think there are a few other terms they should be enforcing as well. Here’s a list of 10 phrases the OQLF may not have heard of (or that we may have invented) that we think they should be adding to their holy book of pure laine words. Allons-y!
