Gus. You said...." LOL! No, verlan is a much older story than France's postwar immigration --if anything, it's been merely adopted by the latest wave of North African immigrants... but they didn't invent it!".....

Gus,gus, gus. sigh. Do you ever bother to read the full article before you make a reply?

This is what I posted...." " Within a couple of decades, Verlan has spread from the peripheral housing projects of France's poorest immigrants, heavily populated with Africans and North African Arabs, and gained widespread popularity among young people across France. "

Go back and read. Verlan is pretty well explained in the article. My point in posting this article was to show that there are now enough arab muslims in france to cause a language change and more comming every day.
No one said the arabs invented verlan you just dreamed that up all by yourself.

Now, could you explain to all why you LOL
