Walloonphobia: The Fear of Walloons

Walloonphobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of Walloons.  Walloons are a group of people living in South Belgium who traditionally spoke a dialect of French called Walloon.  Most of them speak standard French today.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
