### Default Spacing for a Language

I find that I have to use `\nonfrenchspacing` every time after loading `\textgerman`. Is there a way to make `\nonfrenchspacing` default for a language (or for all languages?)

For an adequate problem description please prepare a self-contained and minimal example in order to avoid speculations and guesswork.

I found that I asked about this before too (and forgot) without any solution emerging. Now I looked at "gloss-german.ldf", and found that this does the trick.
`\setotherlanguage[spelling=old]{german}\PolyglossiaSetup{german}{   hyphenmins={2,2},   frenchspacing=false,   fontsetup=true,}`
