je dis ça, je dis rien – Mot du jour
I’m just saying – French expression
What does ” je dis ça, je dis rien ” mean? How do you say ‘I’m just saying’ in French? How is it pronounced? How is it used in a French sentence? Listen to Anne, a French native say it at FrenchHour.com.
je dis ça, je dis rien – I say that, I say nothing – In everyday French, je dis ça, je dis rien or j’dis ça, j’dis rien is used when you want to tell someone they should be doing something, it’s your opinion that YOU would do things differently, but you don’t really say that. You tell people what to do without taking responsibility. I translate it as ‘I’m just saying’.
- « Si tu pars pas faire les courses maintenant, on n’aura rien à manger ce soir car la superette va fermer. Mais bon, j’dis ça, j’dis rien. »
- “If you don’t do the groceries now, we’ll have nothing to eat tonight because the supermarket is going to close. But hey, I’m just saying.”
