Is it true that in France, people get paid to make the language sound more pretty. My teacher told me that people get paid over there to make up words that sound pretty and enforce it.

    I've heard that too! L'Académie Française sets the standard for the French language. Perhaps we need an institution like that in English?!! more pretty = prettier
