une dinde – French expression

How To Say Turkey In French

une dinde – a twit – French expression – Mot du Jour

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.’
