  Picard language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Picard is a language closely related to French, and as such is one of the larger group of Romance languages.
Picard is not taught in French schools (apart from a few one-off and isolated schemes) and is only spoken between friends or in the home.
However, Picard is far from dead and constitutes a lively and large part of the daily life and folklore of the region.

 Old French - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
This vulgar Latin began to vary strongly from the classical language in its phonology; of course, spoken Latin, rather than the somewhat artificial literary language of classical Latin, was the ancestor of the Romance languages including Old French.
The Frankish language had a much larger impact on the vocabulary of Old French as a result of the Frankish conquest of much of the territory of modern France by the Franks during the time of the Volkerwanderung of the Germanic tribes.
A number of other Germanic peoples, including the Burgundians, were active in the territory at that time; the Germanic languages spoken by the Franks, Burgundians, and others were not written languages, and at this remove it is often difficult to identify from which specific Germanic source a given Germanic word in French is derived.

 Picard, Max: World of Silence - Book Reviews - House of Hermits - Hermitary
To Picard the theologian, then, silence is to be contrasted with language, the gift of consciousness that distinguishes the rational being from the universe, capable of silence and noise.
But Picard's insistence on the supremacy of language versus the noise of modern technology (from construction noise to the radio) is a weak protest against time and change.
While Picard is to be commended for rescuing silence from its philosophical enemies, several resources for breaking the paradox that he proposes may be found elsewhere.

 Cache River, How it got its name
As the vernacular gradually replaced Latin, Picard was spoken in Picardy and French was spoken in Ile-de-France.
For centuries these languages were on equal footing, each being a dialect of the "langue d'oil" spoken in the northern half of the country, while "langue d'oc" was in the southern.
In Picard "cache" means hunt ("chasse" in French) and hunting was of primordial and vital importance for these explorers.

 Tamarian - Memory Alpha
Although the species was encountered a total of seven times in the hundred years after first contact, formal relations were unable to be established, due to the complexity and provincial nature of the Tamarian language - which is entirely composed of metaphors derived from their collective experience and mythology.
Unfortunately, Dathon was killed by the creature inhabiting the planet, but not before Picard was able to gain an understanding of the Tamarian language, and communicate with the Tamarian ship, which was engaged in combat with the Enterprise as a result of the misunderstanding over Picard's "capture".
Captain Picard did the same with the knife that was given to him by Dathon after he had returned to the Enterprise-D and found a quiet moment in his ready room to remember Dathon.

 LINGUIST List 15.2349: General Ling: N��ez-Cede�o, L�pez & Cameron
An interesting feature of this research is interconnection of prosodic, intonation, syntactic, logical and communicational aspects of the language which are rarely exhibited in their interconnection in the same research project.
The authors presuppose that the school learning of French is based on the written language and thus the perception of French as it concerns grammatical judgments is unreliable.
Analyzing language contact influence, two scholars do not find parallel structure in present linguistic situation in Basque and Basque Spanish, but it is not excluded ''that there must be some type of preexisting parallel structures'' at some period in the history of Basque Spanish.

But the most telling scene is one in the midst of these decades in which he lovingly advises his now-mature daughter, in unmistakable language, to give up the life of exploration and research that she has learned from him and to live in the moment with the young man she loves:

 The Walloon language page
Other regional languages spoken in certain areas of Wallonia include Picard (romance language, western half of the province of Hainaut), Lorrain (romance language, southern villages of the Luxembourg province), Champenois (romance language, one village in the south of the province of Namur) and Letzebuergesch (germanic language, region of Arlon).
All these languages are spoken in the neighboring countries: the major part of the Picard and Lorrain linguistic areas are in France (where they are not recognized at all as languages).
In our view, this should be considered as a sign of life, although language purists lament the fact that “their” Walloon is changing: if the language is being adapted by the new generation, this means that this generation still finds it useful and wishes to take it over, to make it its own.
