Corsican (Corsu or Lingua Corsa)

Corsican (Corsu or Lingua Corsa) is a Romance language spoken and written on the islands of Corsica (France) and northern Sardinia (Italy), alongside French and Italian, which are the official languages. Historically Corsu is the native language of Corsica, once spoken predominantly as a first and only language there. In 1990, after over 200 years of being an integral part of France, nearly the entire population was fluent in French, their first language, an estimated 50% of those also had some degree of proficiency in Corsu, and a small minority, perhaps 10%, used Corsu as a first language

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of  cauliflower, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
