Je ne vois pas. Et le français ne fabrique pas aussi facilement des verbes à partir de substantifs et des substantifs à partir de verbes que l'anglais.

comment Why are O and E sometimes attached together, as in “les œufs”?
BTW, the story about the fact that "œ" is missing from IS-8859-1 is that the French representative didn't know it was a linguistic ligature and agreed to its removal.

@Aerovistae, if the text has been professionally edited, that's surprising. But a sad fact is that more and more editors are taking electronic source from authors and skipping on the human corrector phase. An additional factor Kareen forgot is common with accent on uppercase letters, they are missing from typewriters and computer keyboard (in the later case you have to look for the key combinations and memorize them), combined with the fact that some character encodings used up to the mid 2000's were missing "œ" (but not "æ").

comment Why are O and E sometimes attached together, as in “les œufs”?
@StéphaneGimenez, It is the traditional usage, see for instance Orthotypographie "Voilà pourquoi je préfère la distinction traditionnelle entre ligatures « linguistiques ou orthographiques » et ligatures « esthétiques ou typographiques » " and further he makes a distinction between "fi" and "ct" calling the first "technique" and the second "esthétique". Here is one source in English making the difference between lexical and typographic ligature.

It isn't a typographic ligature (or the substitution would be optional and could be systematic), it is a linguistic ligature.

comment Kindly requesting a guide to the verb “Asseoir”
@AlexisWilke, Ma compréhension est que c'est une forme qui n'existe plus que régionalement, être d'une de ces régions n'est pas nécessairement être vieux.

comment Is there a difference between “il est quelle heure ?” and “quelle heure est-il ?”?
For me it is more a difference between spoken and written that a difference of register.

-1, analogies between languages is not a way to confirm that something is correct or not.

@StéphaneGimenez, si les fautes d'orthographe sont de mon cru, les abréviations sont d'origine.
