Email or Courriel

News.com Please read this article, now I have nothing wrong with french, I learnt it and have no problem using it, but when a government says that the word e-mail will no longer be used cause it is an english word. If you dont know what I mean, France has now banned the work e-mail from any public documents, they must now use the word courriel. But the word courriel is not even a word it is a made up from combining Courrier Electronique. I just find it stupid, it was like when Bouchard a few years back said that the words Hot Dog and Hambuger could not be used on restaurant signs, they had to use Chein Chaut and Hambergois.
