i wrote idiot instead of egg for fun and when i got it wrong i wondered why they even put it there
well maybe it also means idiot in some idiom or in slang. I don't know, just guessing.
That's correct, "œuf" can mean someone stupid in colloquial French, though I never heard it. I suppose it must be an old expression.
Doesn't look like it, "oaf" seems to come from Old Norse "álfr", while "œuf" seems to come from latin "ŏvum".
It's just a thought, but maybe the English "egghead" meaning someone of high intellect comes from the French "œuf", meaning both "egg" and "idiot". I might be wrong, it just suddenly occurred to me there may be a link. Lisa
In this recording, there is only "œuf" that is weirdly pronounced, but still recognizable enough.
You can try the word on Google Translate, it's closer to what it's supposed to sound like.
The rest is pronounced as you hear it in the recording.
Hold down the "o" key for a second, and other options pop up (at least on iPhone)
do french people pronounce 'oof' (roblox death sound) like in English? cause if people do play roblox in France and everyone is saying 'egg' 'egg' that will be hella funny
The voiceover for œuf sounds like Scrappy Doo... Is the French pronunciation of œ supposed to be so wacky?
My french teacher taught us to spell it "oeuf". She never even told us the french language used "œ"...
I looked for "œuf" on Wikia, and the voice recording there pronounced it somewhat like the English word "enough"... is that the right pronunciation? There's no "n" in the word...
who would randomly say that? That makes no sense. It is better to say (He is eating an egg) or ("name" is eating an egg)
