OT: Free Metro Newspapers...Vladimir Putin referred to as Vladimir POUTINE 3 times!!!

Hey guys,

So... I never pick up these free Metro newspapers nor read them...I read the Gazette and National Post everyday instead...Thursday morning I started at 5am so I did not have a chance to see the hockey scores, I picked up a Metro looking for the nhl scores I stumbled across an article on Vladimir Putin, or Poutine I should say...as it was written. This article referred to Putin as "Vladimir Poutine" no less then three times.

At worked I asked numerous people...is this truly a gaffe? Or a legitimate French grammar rule? I know that the Russian language use a different alphabet system....Cryllic was it?

Those Metro newspapers are like 80% ads. Never read them.

I think in french they do spell Putin as Poutine, but I might be wrong.

It's like when Mercer got George Bush to congratulate Prime Minister Jean Poutine.

Written Putin and pronounced in french, it would sound like a certain - particular - type of street workers, if you catch my drift...

Vladimir **tain.

Are you sure? How do you back this back up?

If Poutine is how the French Language media refer to Putin then how shall we refer to Russian Hockey players such as Andrei Markov and Alexei Kovalev?

Andre Marqov

Alexandre Kovaleve

?

PS And when you want some "Poutine" IN Mother Russia you ask the waiter or the mcdonalds guy for...a "Putin" : )

It has always been written Poutine in french, just like Raspoutine.

That's because Kovalev and Markov are hockey players. But the french academia likes to try to looking intelligent by finding original spellings for russian politicians, philosophers, scientists, etc.

When french college professors talk about the weather, they say stuff like 'le soleil est effectivement radieux ce matin.' What happened to just plain old 'ayoye y fè don bin bô'?

I highly doubt Russians writes it Putin or Poutine - it's not like it's a French or English name to start with... neither are "good" anyway, and chances are were not pronouncing it right... same as hockey player names you've put there...

who knows!! Marqov maybe closer to what his name is really like than Markov for example...

Never thought it would be wrong to have decent vocabulary

Having a decent vocabulary is one thing, but purposely using 5 dollar words where 2 cents words would fit nicely just to look educated is plain arrogance.

Poutine is how his name is written in French.

And yes, it's funny.

Like cooking crèpes when you can have oatmeal or producing a rock concert when you can sit at Beaubien and listen to the stick-guys (toc, toc, tac, toc, toc, tac...) ??

I never saw how Markov and Kovalev are written in french, but it would be something like Marcov and Covalev. Also sounds in "in" are written with a "e" (Maybe Caustitsine?)

What??

Kovalev is the english traduction of his Russian name, like Covalev (or something like that) is the french traduction.

Why are you taking me seriously again?

Whatever... its true that on a message board it's hard to communicate since you don't have tone of voice or body language, etc.
