Good dictdef. There are ways to broaden this. It entered English because of the language of revolution. If some of that context got in, it might be worthy. In its present form: delete.
In that case, move to the Wiktionary and delete. --Ardonik 04:46, Jul 16, 2004 (UTC)
If this were background on the original politcal situation, it would be worth keeping. Unless someone has some details to fill in, I vote to move to wiktionary and delete. FZ 19:09, 16 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Just a dicdef - wiktionary and delete. -- Cyrius|✎ 02:30, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)
I agree: just a dictionary definition and as such it doesn't belong in an encyclopedia. -- Brequinda 16:36 20 Jul 2004 (BST)
Could easily be filled out with examples of fait accomplis (faits accompli?). 220.127.116.11 15:39, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)
ambitious, but I propose linking the 'list of english phrases of french origin' to a new page, not a definition page but an explication of the American Meaning of each phrase on the list, moving the material from this page to that page THEN redirect to the 'definition/explication page.Pedant 23:49, 3 Aug 2004 (UTC)
