I just had a pleasant conversation in the Colorado late-winter sun with a nice lady from one of our labs. Here are some words that came up:
- le/la neurologue: neurologist.
- la vessie: bladder. Note that it’s pronounced [vesi].
- la douane: usually this means customs, but my friend used it to mean “border,” as in la douane Américaine–her husband comes from a place near it in Canada.
- à grande échelle: large-scale.
- le dossier médical: health record.
- le moine: monk.
- avec eux: with them. It’s really frustrating that for all of my vocabulary development, I still struggle with things like how to use object pronouns correctly.
