Cannot speak/read a cock language.

Please make a English translation next time.

Btw: It's one VN.
I want as many VN's as Mangagamer translates, but with a better translation.

French used to be, as the name suggests, the lingua franca of European diplomacy for ages. You've no basis for calling it a cock language, grow up.

I have seen developer videos..... is it French only?
I really hope not...
Why would these French developers, releasing the title in France want to release it in any language other than French? Besides, wouldn't that compete with Mangagamer's release?

I think the fact that the language sucks is a valid reason for calling it a cock language.

Cock isn't even an adjective. GTFO illiterate.
You're selling the actual game and not just the patch? Is that legal?

It's legal if you've licensed it.

"Originally lingua Franca (or Sabir) referred to a mixed language composed mostly of Italian with a broad vocabulary drawn from Persian, French, Greek and Arabic. Lingua Franca literally means "Frankish language". This originated from the Arabic custom of referring to all Europeans as Franks."

It had little to do with what is now the French language.

I'm not going to read your posts anymore, Enericco. Stop pissing on my language. I may not be a linguist, but I'm a reliable editor. I've read your informative link but I still don't see what you're getting at. Cock isn't a noun turned verb, nor is it an adjective. What they're doing is essentially making shit up. And I don't really care. I was just trolling the guy because he's being a douchbag. French is one of my native languages, so I can assure you that it's not cock. There are some very nice women that speak it, some of which have tried to start a conversation with me. If it was cock then that wouldn't happen.

What do I have to do with french? I never said anything, just commented that I can't read french vn that is all. Just for your point, cock language is quite understandable given context so there is no problem using cock as adjective. And how could I know that you were trolling anyways. And one point, my nick isn't Enericco, next time, open your eyes. Sigh.

Also damn, thats some patriotic view there. You better never google "french military victories" and click on I feel lucky
Of course, you can be also Canadian. But then, in Canada, milk comes in bags, so...

I meant you were pissing on English.

"Why it shouldn't? Never heard of a conversion?
Since you aren't probably a linguistic,"

"Why shouldn't it? Ever heard of a conversation?(Have you never heard of a conversation?) Since you probably aren't a linguistic,"

I wasn't going to say anything because English isn't your native language, but you mix the order of words up. It gives me a damn headache.
And I'm a Canadian.
