to be picky

dennett says on page 23, "as the french say, raison d'etre." well, it's actually an anglophone expression taken from french, so english and americans say it to. he's not being accurate. we are plenty more expressions that "the french say" like debut, accoutrement, denouement, au courant, chic, fait accompli, laissez-faire, etc etc etc,
