English words have been invading the French language for a long time and while young professionals in France seem quite happy to put them to use in everyday conversation, other language guardians are not. The latest to be banned in favour of a Gallic term is 'fake news', but as always it's unclear if the alternative informations fallacieuse or the newly coined term infox will really take off. The author, Jean Maillet, one of the most vocal defenders of French against the influx of English has even written a book calling on the people of France to do away with 100 English words that are all the rage in the French language right now.
