French

words
we use every day




 
One of the words that is common in mainstream media and is used a lot in our daily lives as well. Bon appétit can be translated as “Have a Good Meal” or “Enjoy your meal”, there’s definitely something artsy about the word as it has been able to captivate the English language and is used by English speakers every day.

1. Bon appétit

One of the words that is common in mainstream media and is used a lot in our daily lives as well. Bon appétit can be translated as “Have a Good Meal” or “Enjoy your meal”, there’s definitely something artsy about the word as it has been able to captivate the English language and is used by English speakers every day.

2. Cliché

Cliché can be referred to as a term we use when we want to say that a certain opinion is overused and betrays an original thought. We see that this word is mostly used in media or intellectual discussions where ideas or opinions about a certain concept does get stereotyped. The closest one-word translation of Cliché can be a stereotype.


3. Déjà-vu

We bet you can never count how many times you have not only used the word Déjà-vu but also experienced it. It is quite a natural phenomenon to feel that you have already experienced a present incident in the past. Then again it is not surprising that English speakers use this French word a lot as the language French does a great job in explaining strange phenomenon such as Déjà-vu.

4. Encore

Encore is also Eminem’s album and believe its kind of a perfect name for the album as it means the call for a repeated performance at the end of a musical show. Encore is commonly used because it has become a bit of a symbol in the musical industry and everyone uses it.


5. Fiancé

Another word that you probably didn’t have an idea that its French is Fiancé. It is such a common word that one way or another people use it.
