ex)Frankly speaking, I have no idea what it means.
Does Frankly speaking, have any origin? Some people say it's from "France", whose pronunciation is similar.
Quoted from http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/de.../english/frank
Middle English (in the sense 'free'): from Old French franc, from medieval Latin francus 'free', from Francus (see Frank: only Franks had full freedom in Frankish Gaul). Another Middle English sense was 'generous', which led to the current sense.
Not a teacher.
"Frankly speaking" means "honestly" -- no deception.
