If a French native told you that the new movie is a "turnip" (un navet), should you go see it? Or if a passerby calls you a "sausage" (une andouille), should you respond by saying thank you? The answer to both questions is an indisputable, "No!" But how would a nonnative speaker know this? Thanks to David Burke's newest book, there's no need "to hit your biscuit" (se frapper le biscuit; "to worry") any longer! The Street French Slang Dictionary & Thesaurus offers English equivalents and usage tips for over one thousand French terms, including slang words, idioms, proverbs, colloquialisms, and vulgarities. It also offers an extensive thesaurus featuring over one thousand French slang synonyms for common English words and phrases -- all destined to make you feel like an insider in no time.
