Well, half right. FLAC is basically lossless CELP, i.e. a LPC based first-pass at modelling a whitened version of the signal in the time domain, then a second pass in the frequency domain to mop up the residual errors left behind. With CELP (Speex etc) this second stage is incomplete/lossy, with FLAC it is lossless.
