For nearly four centuries L'Acadรฉmie franรงaise, founded by Cardinal Richelieu in 1635, has been guarding the French language, defending it with a spirit the three musketeers would have admired.

Known as โ€œLes immortelsโ€, their mission is to halt the lazy adoption of English, Franglais, as with terms such as โ€œun walkie-talkieโ€ and โ€œle weekend.โ€ They started their dictionary in 1935 ... One of L'Acadรฉmie franรงaiseโ€™s objectives is to produce a French dictionary, of appropriate words, though progress is slow as they published their last dictionary in 1935. Their task is unlikely to be complete by โ€œle weekend.โ€

There are questions as to whether L'Acadรฉmie franรงaise could put a brake on progress. In the organisationโ€™s desire to retain the purity of the French language, will the august body restrict Franceโ€™s exposure to global ideas? Will the L'Acadรฉmie franรงaise hamper cross-fertilisation of new concepts and inadvertently slow French progress in many fields that include culture, medicine, science and technology?
