is that, like, figurative half, mathematical half, philosophical half (which half?), or some other kind of half?

also, what if a french word has an odd number of letters in it, does that mean one of the letters will be half-silent? if so, which kind of half is that?

The prosecution rests.

It's admittedly an exaggerated half. Many letters in French words are silent, and it often seems like half.

I'm sure the French consider themselves more a people than a language. :)

It can mean both, i.e., English, Irish, Scottish, German

But when "the" is used before the word, and nothing else comes after, it's understood to be the people.
