And of course actually Missouri French is an interesting language in itself, because, via its accent, it's very much more close to Canadian French than it is Louisiana French.
But the vocabulary used by the Missouri French is almost identical to that of Louisiana, and that stands to reason because Missouri is Upper Louisiana, in that sense.
Travel is a theme, longing for home is often a theme because there's actually songs amongst the Missouri French that are songs about being at sea.
And the only thing I can say on that is that accent is coming through from the Missouri French.
