What does ” rififi ” mean? How do you say ‘ hubbub ’ 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.

rififi – sometimes I just love the sound of French words. This one is fun: RIFIFI. I can’t really translate it literally. Rififi is an oldish word that means that there is a lot of noise, confusion and rumble about something. It’ often used in newspapers articles.

  • « Ce matin, le canard titrait: Rififi autour du Scandale Durand. »
    • “This morning, the paper’s headline read: hubbub around the Durand scandal.”
