comment Which space should one use before punctuation ? Does it depends on the technology?
@Un francophone: That is precisely what I was going to say when I saw the question had been proposed as a dupe. And why I kept my question after I found the older one. There are some good answers here specific to usage too. I thought I included the usage tag but I will now add it.

comment What is the French word for linguistic “borrowing” or “loanword” that came from English?
The question title has been dumbed down and is no longer what I asked. I primarily wanted to know the French term for borrowing or loanword to use in question tags here. I wanted to know if there was a further more specific word for borrowings from English as a side question.

comment Pourquoi place-t-on une espace avant les ponctuations fortes ? — Why is there a space before certain punctuation marks?
This is occasionally seen in English too, perhaps only English of a certain vintage and style and from a certain country. I'll try to keep an eye open for examples.
