French language

French language

French is a Romance language of the Indo-European family. It descended from the Vulgar Latin of the Roman Empire, as did all Romance languages. French evolved from Gallo-Romance, the Latin spoken in Gaul, and more specifically in Northern Gaul. Its closest relatives are the other langues d'oïl—languages historically spoken in northern France and in southern Belgium, which French (Francien) largely supplanted. French was also influenced by native Celtic languages of Northern Roman Gaul like Gallia Belgica and by the (Germanic) Frankish language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders. Today, owing to France's past overseas expansion, there are numerous French-based creole languages, most notably Haitian Creole. A French-speaking person or nation may be referred to as Francophone in both English and French.

Stream

Stream

A stream is a continuous body of surface water flowing within the bed and banks of a channel.

A tributary, or affluent, is a stream or river that flows into a larger stream or main stem river or a lake. A tributary does not flow directly into a sea or ocean. Tributaries and the main stem river drain the surrounding drainage basin of its surface water and groundwater, leading the water out into an ocean. The Irtysh is a chief tributary of the Ob river and is also the longest tributary river in the world with a length of 4,248 km (2,640 mi). The Madeira River is the largest tributary river by volume in the world with an average discharge of 31,200 m3/s (1.1 million cu ft/s).

Drainage basin

Drainage basin

A drainage basin is an area of land where all flowing surface water converges to a single point, such as a river mouth, or flows into another body of water, such as a lake or ocean. A basin is separated from adjacent basins by a perimeter, the drainage divide, made up of a succession of elevated features, such as ridges and hills. A basin may consist of smaller basins that merge at river confluences, forming a hierarchical pattern.

Course

Straggle Creek begins at an unnamed lake at an elevation of 423 metres (1,388 ft),[3] at the height of land between the Ottawa River drainage basin to the north and east, and the Trent River drainage basin to the west and south. It flows north to the southwest end of Straggle Lake, then continues north from the northwest end of the lake to the south end of Little Straggle Lake. The creek leaves Little Straggle Lake at the northwest heading west, then gradually curves north, and reaches its mouth at Allen Creek at an elevation of 392 metres (1,286 ft).[3] Allen Creek flows via Benoir Lake, the York River, and the Madawaska River to the Ottawa River.[1][2][4]
