Fun to listen to, but imperfect

Fun and interesting podcast on words and their intriguing backgrounds. However, there are some linguistic imperfections to be noticed. For instance: how is French a tonal language?! If you mean I towing all having a different internation patterns in English, then yes. Yet, this is not what the word “tonal” with respects to a language means at all! Mandarin and Cantonese, as well as other Asian languages or Tona languages, changing the meaning of a word by the internation of which. Speaking with a French accent, doesn’t make French a tonal language!
