"My spoon is too big!"
Translation:Ma cuillère est trop grande !
March 28, 2013
There are several words in French that have a sense of "big" to them, but in different ways:
- grand(e) : big (usually meaning "tall")
- large : big (with the subtext meaning of "wide")
- gros(se) : big (ref volume, with the subtext meaning of "fat" or "thick")
So they all mean "big" in their own way, but they don't all equally apply in every situation.
