नोट[संपादन]

  1. Maine does not have an official language.[2] Both English and French are considered the de facto languages of the state.[3][4][5] French in particular is legally protected and recognized as Maine's minority language.[6][7] Maine (along with Louisiana) is considered apart of the Francophone world and makes up the largest French-speaking population in the United States.[6]
