Bilingual with a long-standing French (and occasionally English) spelling problem (damn consonant gemination rules), made only worse by my current daily use of a third, wholly unrelated, language (far, far away on the language family tree).

Do not be fooled by frequent pedant digressions: I have no professional or academic background in linguistics, only a lifelong passion for languages (and intertwined historical facts).

"bancaires" couldn't possibly be the right word (not sure if the OP meant "banquiers" or "banques": both fit) | second example sentence was entirely wrong.
