Default Language defaults

If I have a character that speaks (for example) French at Accented levels, is it possible, using the Full Edit Window 'Gives', to give Latin at Broken?
How would that be worded in the edit field?

The simple method:

=+1 to "AD:Latin"

The slightly more complex method:

=+@indexedvalue(me::level,0,1,1) to "AD:Latin"

Eric, thanks. The first I sorta sussed out but thought was too easy. I was wrong and was right.
The second is what I am likely looking for, even though I don't understand it. :)

Before I apply the code, will the Advantage 'Language Talent' modify the adjusted languages (Latin in the case of our example)?
BTW, yes, I am using the article, 'Speaking in Tongues' by Jason 'PK' Levine as my default system.

Advance apologies for resurrecting a zombie thread, but did you ever complete your .gdf for this article, and is it available anywhere for others to use?

Just what I needed for a campaign where many characters will speak both Hindi and Urdu.

Yes, it does.

I didn't write a GDF but edited the existing files, adding in the modifiers as noted.
This has greatly helped game play and made for a more realistic environment. It has also produced a few humorous results too when translations go astray. :)
