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.

Review:

Even if you've diligently learned all your verb conjugations, memorized French vocabulary, and successfully navigated the subjunctive tense, you still won't speak French like the natives. Leave it to David Burke and Street French Slang to fill in the gaps. Want to know 50 different ways to say someone's drunk? How about some entertaining expressions for "bald" ("He doesn't have any more alfalfa on the high plateaus.")? The idioms, colloquialisms, proverbs, and vulgarities contained in Street French Slang may not endear you to polite society, but they'll certainly enhance your comprehension of everyday French speech. The book even comes with a handy summary of popular French gestures so you'll be sure to know what's being said even when nothing is.
