    ¿Qué es briznilla? Lo leí en "El Principito." La frase completa es "Crece hacia el sol encantadora briznilla inofensiva."

    Muchas gracias.

    The English translation reads: to push a charming little sprig inoffensively upward toward the sun.

    Tengo copias en ingles y español, pero si encuentro la palabra "briznita" en un otro contexto, I would not know como traducirla. :(

    It's the string of a string bean, haha. And you're missing an "una." But the English translation I'm looking at calls it a "charming, harmless little twig reaching toward the sun." "Twig" is not correct, of course.

    Well, what is it that we want? What does "briznilla" means in English or a correct translation of the passage?
    If it's the latter, let's get to work.
    Here:
    Alors elle s'étire, et pousse d'abord timidement vers le soleil une ravissante petite brindille de radis ou de rosier...

    The house dictionary gives another translation of "brindille" as "sprig," which would be somewhat more appropriate for a seedling. "(Green) shoot" would be even better.
