While we're on nativization/Anglicization of French expressions, I've just
recently heard on TV people (younger than me, naturellement) saying
<clique> [click], not [kleek] (generational/sociolectal variation). (In my
mind, this is the same sort of dysphony ~ euphony) felt in <creek> [crick ~
creak] (dialectal variation).)
