a twit – French expression
une dinde – a turkey. Literally, une dinde is ‘a turkey’. And as it’s almost Thanksgiving in the States, I thought it fun to talk about this bird everyone loves so. In everyday French though, une dinde is a French expression that describes a stupid empty-headed woman. It’s a very sexist and derogatory term.
- « Ce politicien vient de tuer sa carrière en appelant la maire de Lannemarion “une dinde”. »
- ‘This politician just killed his career by calling the mayor of Lannemarion “a twit.’
