The day job has been a bit less exhausting this month so I’ve had more time for reading in the evenings. This naturally means more dictionary look-ups than last time so hopefully these words will be good’uns…
Baragouin nm – gibberish
Scabreux / scabreuse adj – 1. Improper (subject). 2. Risky.
Tristounet / tristounette adj – depressing, gloomy.
Forban nm – 1. Pirate (historic). 2. Shark, crook (figurative).
Lambiner v – to dawdle
Rejeton nm – 1. Offspring (child, descendant). 2. Offshoot (botany)
Remugle nm – mustiness, fustiness
Valoche nf – bag, suitcase (informal)
Plantoir nm – dibber, dibble
I particularly like it when I learn a new word in both French and English. I mean, WTF is a dibble…?
