      As a French speaker, we could do away with accents and absolute tons of silent vowels and consonants and French would still work exactly as well. People complain about English because more people learn it as a second language and these forums are anglo-centric, but French is just as much of a grammatical mess.

        Trust me, French is a different kind of mess. It’s mostly consistent in its messiness, English is exceptions from exceptions from exceptions. The really hard part about French is listening because it all sounds the same thanks to all the silent letters, but even then they still make reading easier.

          Still. Thought 200 years of effort, french was made pretty uniformus. There is mosty minor accent difference that change across the french-speaking world. But during the same time the way we write stop to change even though the language evolved. So we have everyone how speak french the same way but write it in a way that obsolete since at least 150 years.
