I've been trying to relearn my high-school French (from oh so many years ago!), and recently came across this great article, "How French Has Influenced English", http://french.about.com/od/vocabulary/a/frenchinenglish.htm.

And it's timely, with its explanation of voilà (not sure if the accented a will come through) -- pronounced "vwa la" -- http://french.about.com/od/vocabulary/a/voila.htm. (The link to this is on page 5 of the main article.)

Happy Independence Day weekend to the US-readership,
