WHAT MEANS Q IN FRENCH ?
more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
This time I ran out of ideas to find something interesting which started what a "Q". Like Jenny who last time had a lack of imagination and finally wrote after a conversation with her little granddaughter about the dirty letter !"P" .
This gave me the idea to explain that we also have such a word in French and that is "Q" it is proncounced like "cul" and means "arse". Of course this letter is the favorite one for all kids learning the alphabet and spelling names. The unfortunate person who has a name ending with Q or (cul) is often subject to laughter. Two Q's is even better.
Of course there are also other words starting with a Q, like quotes for example, and then you google (that's a new verb I found out) for "kid's quotes"
- If you give your dog a bath, you get one yourself.
- No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats!
- You should never surprise a cow when you are behind it.
- It's not a good idea to call 911 when there is not an emergency.
But there are others far more sophisticated once !
Have you ever "quomodocunquized" ?? Probably yes, because it means "to make money in any way possible"
Are you a querent ? I mean one who asks a question ?
Or have you used a quadriga which is a two-wheeled carriage drawn by four horses ?
I think that is enough for today before I become a quoz which is an absurd person or thing.
