French is a language descended from the Latin language of the Roman Empire, its development also influenced by the native Celtic languages of Roman Gaul and by the Germanic language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders. One of the major languages of Earth, it was nevertheless banned from use by the United Powers League in the 23rd century, English being designated as the common language of the planet.[1] However, even two centuries later, the language can be found in minor use by the United Earth Directorate's citizens, such as Gerard DuGalle.[2]

Despite the isolation from Earth, elements of French culture and language are also found in the Koprulu sector, at least as far as winemaking is concerned. Benson Cognek is one such example.[3]
