"[the linguistics expert] told us that the French influence on the language was quite significant"

Yeah

Thank you

He also told us it was never that decisive to warrant your claims, and that your "P+S+F" tale was incorrect.

You're welcome.
Yes I know he said that .... which simply means "Dave is right [facts] ... wait ... what did I just type??!  Dave is wrong [orthodoxy]"
No Dave, that's not what it means. It means if you had said "French had an influence on early Portuguese" you would be correct, but that isn't what you said. What you said was wrong, and now you're trying to gaslight yourself and us into thinking you actually meant something else from what the words you wrote say.

If all you had meant was that there was an influence of French on the development of Portuguese then why the blue buggery fuvk didn't you say that in the first place instead of your idiotic P=F+S bollocks that you insisted on for months?

You guys - and the MSM - have no capacity whatsoever for taking an imprecise statement and making sense of it.  It's astonishing.  What I said - imprecise at it was - achieves the same goal as saying Portuguese had significant French influence in it's develoment (while Spanish did not).  The goal being - Portuguese seems a bit "Frenchy" ... whereas Spanish does not ... hmm ... was there French influence?  Whereas with Spanish there is not?  Why yes.  Yes there was.  See?
Words mean things. 
In every day conversation, and certainly in science, and antiscience.
Just look at how the creationists carefully read science articles, and trim out little quotemines.  How they cling to, and fight wars about their pet interpretations of bible verses.

You change definitions of words.  Why?

Not equivalent at all in science, where precision is important.  That's why you suck so at science.

WTF does that mean?  Got any examples?

Oh, Dave, you are so poor at making stuff up any lying with it.

Influence of the French in the Spanish

Quote
A very important influence in the development of the Spanish is the French language. Linguistically, both languages share a common ancestor in the vulgar Latin; so it's obvious that both influenced each other because of the similarities in their origins. In addition, France and Spain share a geographical border and a familiar line (from royalty), which allowed an opened exchange of the language.

The first French influence in the contemporary Spanish began during the XVII and XVIII century as result of a familiar connection between the monarchies. However, the influence of France in Spain was not based exclusively on the government. During this time, French was the most important language in the world.

The language functioned as a representation of a powerful empire; therefore, it is clear that the language exerted its influence in Spain. However, "the French not only became the language most prestigious of the continent," it became a representation of style. Because of this belief, members of the royal court spoke French more often. With the adoption of many words, phrases and ideals of the French language, the linguistic exchange was a cultural innovation with its roots in literature and art of French.

Also, "Is a mixture of A and B" means that the effects of A and B are comparable in amount and no other influence is comparable.

In other words: do you have any evidence that Henry of Burgundy, say, introduced French to his subjects? Or evidence that he introduced it to his aristocracy, and that the aristocratic language is what became Portuguese? Anything beyond who the ruler was?
Or that Henry of burgundy even spoke French? I have no idea but it isn't a given.
Probably more likely that he spoke Aztec.  Ya know ... since ya'll are through the looking glass on so many other topics, why not this one too?
Dave, did you realize that the rulers often didn't speak the language of their subjects? And that this was often a major political dispute?
Heh.  Yes.  Like Count Henry.

QED
Dave, did you even glance at my "proposed mechanism" post?

Do you understand that it's entirely possible that Henry of Burgundy spoke one of the other European languages, not French, even as the ruler of a (now) French region?

What makes Portuguese seem "Frenchy"?

I also go to the feed store.  I buy Victor brand.  It was pretty highly rated by dogfoodadviser and reasonably priced.

The shipping costs kill the price on Amazon.  Check Chewy.com free shipping if your total is over $50.

You are so limited.

"Significantly influenced by" is not "comprises a major portion of".

Portuguese was significantly influenced by many languages. Leaving them out renders your claim false. You should say something like Portuguese is a mixture of Spanish and German and Arabic and..." until you've run out of equivalent effects.
