The information here was taken from an e-mail from Christophe decrying the naming of the language as gaulhosc &c. BoArthur 18:49, 4 August 2006 (PDT)

Wider Distribution

Was reading the update at Francien and wonder about that language's predominance in Algeria. Wouldn't most of the traders, sailors, settlers, etc. have come from Gaulhe? Shouldn't Narbonosc be more prevalent there? Perhaps to the point of (co-)officialdom (with French)? Elemtilas 13:25, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

In Assassinat, that's exactly what I said, that both languages were official in Algeria. S'pose I should get around to changing that in this article. BoArthur 14:13, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
I'd say definitely, since the France#Communites section says Algeria is considered a self-governing part of Gaulhe.
Just how does the language division work in France? Is it more or less exactly like Belgium *here*, or am I missing important nuances? Benkarnell 13:31, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Haven't really thought it through. At some level, it's almost as if France is governed by the Francien and Gaulhosc governments, and only once in a while get together to do national level things. Dunno, though. Marc? BoArthur 14:13, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
The article on France itself seems to run counter to the above statement. The only nod to ethniciy/language that I can see as far as the national government goes is that there must be a certain number of senators from Gaulhe. By the way, glad to see that Assassinat clarifies the issue. Elemtilas 15:05, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
You're right Ben in comparing the situation with Belgium which from what I remember is how Christophe once compared it. The 2 communities are largely atonomous in term of internal matters but join at the top to govern the external matters of the country.
As far as algeria is concerned, francian and narbonosc would be use for official pronouncement but in pratice, narbonosc would be use for everyday affairs.--Marc Pasquin 21:07, 18 August 2009 (UTC)


Catalan *here* is considered to be an offshoot of Occitan... Is it any different *there*? After all, Narbonosc is very different from *here*'s Occitan! Could I conlang IB Catalan if it is still a langue d'oc? Juan Martin Velez Linares 19:26, 27 August 2015 (CDT)

Hmmm... I'm not sure who the overseer of Aragon is. Dig in, and ask Padraic/Elemtilas. I don't see why there couldn't be at LEAST a minority Occitan Catalan...BoArthur 18:14, 27 August 2015 (PDT)
