Quite a lot of "English" words are really French ones we "borrowed".

PitBull, spawn of Rottie!

that's a fact - we seem to borrow - steal - invent words quite regular like and yet we have a really complicated language because of all the words we have - some just a nuance off from all the others that might fit only that exact instance of usage , 

i do love the vocabulary , its fun to offer up the exact word on certain occasions and the trivia is entertaining , i really enjoy the older - near antiquated words , but it certainly messes about with these international discussions , 

DO NOT FEAR - the curmudgeons here are harmless , we have little to no turmoil and those that might offer such get banned , if you think there is a rift it is most likely some inside ribbing that is going on by those that have been here long enough to poke each other now and again , 

some of us old curmudgeons are more prone to that than others , but we mean no harm nor foal ....or is that fowl ? oh yes - i recall now we shoot at those dont we ?

Francois,

I am writing an article about these P.'07 Siam-contract bayonets.

Yours is very interesting in that it shows BOTH the partially scrubbed 'WILKINSON' and '1907' stampings.

Since you hold the copyright on the photograph, I would like your permission to include the photograph in the article.  You would of course be credited for the photo in the Acknowledgements.

Best Regards,

JMB
