People or language of France.
Modern "romance" language evolved from the Frankish (Germanic) race/language when Roman soldiers imported Latin into the occupied regions of Gaul (Gallia). The soldiers spoke an abbreviated (simplified) Latin which the Franks further simplified into a creolized version (this "pidgeon" Latin eventually evolved into modern French).
"Pardon monsieur, je voudrais du pommes frites. Ou est le McDonald's?"
"Sorry mister... I don't speak French. But here... have some freedom fries."
