"How are you, my little darling?"
Translation:Comment vas-tu, mon petit chou ?
It certainly is. I reported that this answer was not being accepted, and if it happens again you should report it as well.
Yes! Certainly in France and Belgium, I used to get called this by my Belgian mum.
There is no end to the little terms of endearment used by the French. You could write a book about them.
maybe using vous instead of tu is not appropriate when calling someone little darling
i said 'mon petit cher' and it was marked as wrong, with the correct version given as 'mon petit cheri'. What is the difference between these two? 'Darling' and 'dear' seem to me to be synonyms.
It is an adjective. Cher means expensive or it could be used in a letter to be polite (Très cher XY). It means the person is "expensive" (important) to you
I assume that the way of this talk is by an old woman to a young one. Am I correct?
Its an idiom- very commonly spoken to someone as a term of endearment. Here in Maine the french speaking franco-americans use it all the time. Parents use it to speak to their children, thier pets, etc. My husband uses "mon petit chou" to address me.
