Not sure if this is correct. What “Constitution” are you referring to? I’m not aware of any language restriction in our constitution which dates from 1787, not 1921. You might want to review your assertion. And, you can study any language you like here and there are hundreds of languages spoken here, including Native American languages. The one language that everyone understands here is English.[/QUOTE]There is NO official language in the US. Anybody can speak whatever they like. There is no such thing as “state protection” on the use of Spanish. In my state of Texas, a huge proportion of the population speaks and understands Spanish but it is not because there are protections on the use of Spanish.
Complete nonsense. English is the language of “common usage” in the US. That’s it.
“Crushed”? Really? Then how come that the legal system in the State of Louisiana is based on Napoleonic Law and not Anglo-Saxon Law?
English is the major spoken language, due to the enactment of the new constitution in 1921, which banned French from being spoken or learned at school.
My dear royal,
Quebec is not an unique case.... Spanish in Texas is as French in Quebec with the difference Texas belonged to the Crown more centuries than Quebec belonged to the French Monarchy. I think English was imposed in school and administration because US goverment wanted a culturally unified country. It is not bad or good.. only a fact.
The Louisiana Constitution of 1921 was adopted in convention June 18, 1921. Not in 1787! Because in1787 as in 1800 Louisiana was a Spanish Seaborne Dominion!...
Only English movement is not equivalent in Canada or in Spain never in history.. A COMPLETE SENSE.... after 400 years.. Spanish was not spoken by population in Philipines or in Paraguay, High Peru etc etc.. and in New Spain the main official language was the Nahuatl, not the Spanish...so we just compare the yankees settlers and the Conquistadores... settlers wanted culturally unified area... Conquistadores didn´t care languages!
