comment Devons- nous écrire « OK », « O.K. » ou « ok » ?
@comethapaxd'ajax :) Thank you again. Just noticed your answer with the point about ngram corpus not distinguishing the interjection. I was going to fall back on simply saying: "just use what's common"

comment Devons- nous écrire « OK », « O.K. » ou « ok » ?
@comethapaxd'ajax Good point about absence not being equivalent to forbidding a word. I did notknow about the Emplois fautifs section and assumed that if they did not list it then it was considered inadvisable. I'll modify the answer based on that.

comment Is the phrase “par hasard” used to increase the level of politeness?
@200_success That's a very good way of putting it. It captures both the possibility of the original courtliness and its sarcastic employment.

comment Quel est le sens du mot « décaner » au football ?
Another very tenuous link might be with the (U.K.) use of the phrase "to cane it" which can mean either to be under the influence of some drug, or else to do something with great speed or power. collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/cane-it or for an example of use (in the game of cricket) espncricinfo.com/the-ashes-2013/content/story/663879.html "milepost on August 22, 2013, 7:31 GMT @Jared Hansen, he didn't 'not walk'. He caned it to slip, like chipping it back to the bowler."
