Professor Romanides and his followers appear to confuse the Greek usage of "Franks" -- which later writers applied indiscriminately to _all_ Western Latin Europeans, including Germans! -- with the original tribe that occupied Gaul.

Franks are Germans, and Frankish is a Germanic language. See: Wikipedia:Franks --Rdr. Andrew 13:42, 26 Mar 2005 (CST)
