Seo scéal spéisiúl ón mblag The Virtual Linguist

'Prix de la Carpette Anglaise
The annual Prix de la Carpette Anglaise was awarded in France a few days ago. Carpette Anglaise translates as 'English Doormat' and the 'award' goes to 'the person or institution who has given the best display of "fawning servility" to further the insinuation into France of the accursed English language' (BBC story here). Runners-up this year included the supermarket chain Carrefour for describing itself using the English word 'market' and a French rock band called Nelson (after Admiral Nelson) who sing in English. The winner was the French higher education minister Valerie Pecresse who admitted she preferred to communicate in English when attending European Union meetings in Brussels.'

Meas tú an chóir gradam mar seo a chur chun cinn sa Ghaeilge? Cad a mholfá?
Caithfidh mé a rá nach dtaitníonn na teidil a bhíonn ar chlair áirithe ar TG4 Uaireanta- Feirm Factor mar shampla, agus gan amhras tá teidil gránna eile nach bhfuilim in ann cuimhniú orthu inniu!

É sin ráite ní bhíonn teidil na gclár béarla ar RTÉ thar moladh beirte ach oiread
'The All Ireland Talent Show'-bheifeá ag súil le teideal níos gasta ná sin..
ach is cancairt mise is dócha...
