This has just appeared this morning.
Could be useful?
First word in my list is: "retour".
Example usage: "Le retour est possible ?"
So far, so good.
Example translation: "Is the come back possible?"
So, what's the French word for "pants!" (informal Brit. meaning "garbage")?
Thanks for pointing this out. 1km. I hadn't noticed. I had a look at my list and immediately looked for nonsense French sentences and translations. In a dozen goes I didn't find any. I think it will be interesting rather than useful at the moment. Perhaps it will be useful later
I would have found your example fine if the French had been "un retour" and the French " a comeback". It is still not the most likely translation.
To answer your question about "pants" I suggest:: C'est nul, ce sont des balivernes (f), des salades (f.). (Des foutaise (f. vulgar) is probably both too rude and too dated.)
@Mizotte - You must have missed the one for mettre: "On peut mettre sa photo, ou pas." - "You can put your photo, or not." Really unhelpful if you don't know what the French is supposed to mean*, because the English is "des balivernes". Thanks for that great word - but not dated? c.1450.
- For the curious: "... add your photo" (to a wall), or "... post ..." (on a website), or "... include ..." (in a CV), for instance. The words in brackets can be implied. But in English, you can only "... put your photo onto/in/over/under/etc. ..." an object, which must be stated in the sentence.
@1km: :) Meanwhile, here in Oz, underwear is most often referred to as "undies" (I know, you were dying to know), while "pants" and "trousers" are pretty much synonymous. Still, I appreciate the heads-up, pants-wise, should I find myself in Blighty in search of trousers, I won't blunder into a store and ask for a new pair of pants! :D
