This seems to be turning into more of a monthly strand to the blog, rather than a weekly one. Also, I think it’s probably more interesting for me than anyone else because I’m really only writing these vocab posts to help engrain the new words in my brain – seems to be working so far too.
Anyway, let’s get on with it. Here are my top ten dictionary look-ups from the last couple of weeks.
hérisson nm – hedgehog
rauque (voix) a – hoarse (voice)
marécage nm – swamp / marsh
marécageux a OR marécageuse a – swampy / marshy
jante (de roue) nf – rim (of wheel)
touffe (de cheveux, d’herbe) nf – tuft (of hair, of grass)
touffe (de plantes) nf – cluster (of plants)
charnière nf – hinge
mansarde nf – attic
talus nm – slope / embankment
I was so pissed off with myself for hedgehog and tuft but we can’t remember everything all the time, can we?
