People are furious because France is changing the way it spells over 2,000 words

Outrage has erupted in France after a language moderator approved changes to the spellings of thousands French words in an attempt to simplify the language.

The alterations were approved by the country’s official language moderator, Académie française in 1990, but are due to come into effect this year and will be published in school books and dictionaries this September, The Local reports.
