French for “home”, but in the greater sense.
I realise that the French for home is “la maison”, but is there a different word to use when referring to home in the greater sense? That is, in the sense of: “rentrer à mon pays.” Much like E.T. was want to do. :-)
I intentionally wasn’t giving the conjugation. I was talking in the infinitive “to return to my country”.
Thanks to all. I think using “chez-moi” feels the most comfortable in this context then. It just felt so strange to say “to the house” when I haven’t lived in my country for eighteen years now. I’m pretty sure my old house will be occupied. :-)
It seemed so strange that I felt sure there would be another word for “home” that I had somehow missed. Clearly not.
