A pleasant conversation in the Colorado late-winter sun

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.
