Well, I'm not stopping you.
Iversen and my bossy parents told me to abstain from discussions on brexit online (Iversen wrote it on ym log, and he's my friend). I havne't got freedom, and the houses are incredibly expensive in London, so I can't buy a house, where I would have more freedom, although that is not certain when you consider the bossy people in my life.

No, not standard French now, but Walloon, and Walloon has 4 dialects. My grandparents and the generations before could speak walloon, but French killed it (them, wallon and the dialects and the other langauges as well like picard etc) during the 19th century.
Some people can speak it now, but not many.
EDIT i mean 20th century
here's an example text in walloon from omniglot you can see this: http://www.omniglot.com/writing/walloon.htm
