♡ F R E N C H S L A N G T E R M S♡
I’ve been in a lot of roleplays and I often find many foreign characters, the majority of them from the U.K or Australia; but I have also found french ones who don’t exactly speak french. This is a masterlist of casual terms that your character can use on any convo or para, to make it more real. Includes some curses and ‘big words’.
I will be updating this post.
- 'Salut!' - Hi!
- 'Bonjour' - Good morning.
- 'Bon soir' - Good afternoon.
- 'Bonne nuit.' - Good night.
- 'Ça va?’ - How are you/How’s the going?
- ‘D’accord !’ - (or just D’acc.) Ok, general agreement.
- 'Oh mon Dieu' - Oh my God.
- ‘Mon Dieu!’ - My God.
- ‘Chouette !’ - Cool!
- ‘Vaseux’ - Dazed, confused
- ‘Charabia.” - Nonesense.
- ‘Arrete!’ - Stop!
- 'Au revoir.' - Goodbye.
- ‘Fais gaffe!’ - Be careful!
- ‘Prends soin.’ - Take Care.
This one is very important if your character is french:
- ‘Allez les bleus !!’ - Go Blues! (National Football Soccer Team)
THE SLANG (OR ARGOT):
Here’s what I remember (it’s not much, i know)
- ‘meuf’ - Girl, chick. (femme backwards, the verslan way.)
- ‘gars’ - Guys, boys (Short for garcon)
- ‘mec’ - Dude, guy, friend.
- ‘mdr’ - Lol (mort de rire)
- 'ouf' - Crazy (fou backwards.)
- ‘ado’ - Teen.
- ‘sec’ - Dry, whe you have no money left.
- ‘un flic’ - A cop.
- ‘un crapaud’ - Literally a toad, but people use it to mean a brat, especially a bratty child.
THE ROMANTIC STUFF:
- ‘Je t’aime’ - I love you.
- 'Je t'adore' - I adore you.
- 'Je te désire' - I want/desire you.
- 'Mon amour' - My love (unisex)
- 'Ma chere, ma chérie.' - My dear (female)
- ‘Mon cher.’ - My dear (male)
- ‘Ourson’ - Baby bear (Yes I’ve heard this one many times)
- ‘Mon petit bébé d’amour.’ - My little love baby (This one is not only embarrassing but also ridiculous but i s2g i heard it like a million times)
- 'Ma belle' - My beautiful (female)
- ‘Mon beau.’ - My beautiful (male)
- ‘un béguin' - Someone you fancy, your crush.
- ‘Petit copain’ - Boyfriend.
- 'Petite copine' - Girlfriend.
- ‘Fiancé’ - Fiance (male)
- ‘Fiancée’ - Fiance (female)
- 'Mari, époux' - Husband.
- 'Épouse' - Wife. You can also use 'Ma Femme' if it is your wife, or sa femme if it is someone else’s.
INSULTS AND CURSES:
- 'connard !' - Stupid, idiot. (male)
- 'conasse !' - Stupid, idiot. (female)
I’ve only heard those two directed towards a person, not a situation or and object.
- ‘con’ - Abreviation, this one can also be used to describe a situation.. (C’est con!)
- ‘Sabot’ - Idiot.
- ‘Salope !’ - Bitch.
- ‘Pute !’ - Whore, slut. It can be complemnted with ‘sale’ (dirty) and it ends up like this: “Sale pute!”
- 'Putain de merde!' - Fucking shit (?)
- ‘Merde !’ - Shit! (It can be complemented with ’Roulette de merde!’ (Shit roulette) one of my teachers used to say it all the time lol. you also put it at the end of something that you don’t like, par example: Internet de merde ! (Shitty internet/ Fucking internet) when your internet isn’t working.
- ‘T’es chiant!" - You’re annoying (as fuck), you’re dumb, stressing.
If you have any questions you can always go to my ask box and I’ll be glad to answer.
I am going to print this out, laminate it, and keep it with my gloves and spade.
This is a UK thing so look at the seasons for planting not the months listed if you’re in the southern hemisphere! C:
HAPPY BISEXUAL AWARENESS DAY
It may be Banned Books Week - but it’s also Biweek. Put together by GLAAD, Biweek is a place to celebrate bisexuality.
But independently of Biweek is today - Bisexuality Awareness Day / Bisexuality Visibility Day! Celebrated for years in the bisexual community, it’s a place to celebrate and showcase bisexuality, which often gets erased in mainstream media.
How could we resist getting involved? Our good friend Dahlia Adler shared her list of books with amazing bisexual representation for us to share with all of you. Her guide to QUILTBAG / LGBTQIA+ representation in the writing world is astounding, and we highly recommend you check it out!
