Gates McFadden[edit]

I wanted to add that Gates McFadden(famous for playing Doctor Crusher on Star Trek) is restoring a theater here in Languedoc but I don't have a lot of information, or was even sure where to add it, so I thought I'd just add it here and someone could do with it what they want.


"... dominions of the kings of Aragon and the kings of Majorca; it did not come under French control until the 16th century. " : I'm not sure this applies to Languedoc ; I suppose it's rather Roussillon. Rivaj.

Yes, this applies only to Roussillon, so I deleted it from the article. Hardouin 16:15, 2 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Could someone get a copyright-free or licenced pic of the coat of arms for this page? --Daniel C. Boyer 19:26, 15 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Lunel[edit]

Does anyone know if the town of Lunel is/was in Languedoc or the Provence? It's not written up yet. JFW | T@lk 13:53, 13 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Lunel was part of the province of Languedoc. Now it is part of the region of Languedoc-Roussillon. Hardouin 16:15, 2 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Langue d'Oc and Langue d'Oeïl[edit]

French languages are divided into two broad groups (and corresponding proto-languages): Langue d'Oeïl, which used oeïl to mean yes (the French language itself is in this group), and Langue d'Oc, which used oc to mean yes (Provençal belongs in this group). Is this the origin of the name Languedoc? Should it be mentioned? --Taejo 18:18, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

This is the origin of the name. It is already mentioned in the history section. Hardouin 15:37, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
How do you pronounce Languedoc? I think it'd be nice to have an IPA pronunciation key at the top of this article.  –Benjamin  (talk)  21:52, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
Done! I added new pictures too. Hardouin 13:22, 19 June 2006 (UTC)


Link Spam[edit]

Looks like there's a low level edit war going on between Alexgregbiba (pushing the commercial Creme du Languedoc site) and Mpprh (pushing the equally commercial Languedoc-page site). They take it in turns to add their own site and delete the other's. I suspect that both have been removing useful links as well (don't know why ??) so it might be worth restoring the external links as they were before these two started their vandalism. What does anyone else think? In any case they need watching Languedocienne 18:49, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Nonsensical sentence[edit]

Removed the following sentence as it makes very little sense:

The famous Swedish noble family: De la Gardie oldest known family member lived in Languedoc 1387: Robert d'Escouperie married with Anne de l'Estandartand: son: Etienne De la Gardie. Married 1428 with Jeanne de Hautpoul: son: Guillaume De la Gardie and Ornaison. Married 1469 9/10 with Jeanne de Bellegarde de la Gourcau: son: Jacques d’Escouperie and Ornaison. Married 1511 with Catharine de Sainte-Colombe, daughter of Bérenger de Sainte-Colombe from Houpia, and Honorine Dufaur de Saint-Jorry had a son: Pontus De la Gardie, born 1520, dead 1585.

Garrigues[edit]

I am currently proposing that the Garrigues page should be replaced by the content now found on the Garrigues (disambiguation) page and the the material presently on the Garrigues page should be moved to a new page to be titled Les Garrigues, Catalonia If you have the time I would appreciate your comments on the Discussion page at Garrigues. I hope you will agree. Sincerely, GeorgeLouis (talk) 20:27, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
