    Je voudrais lancer un fil que traduit les expression AAVE vers le français/argot…

    Est-ce que AAVE est pour l'African American Vernacular English ?
    Je m'y perds avec tous les acronymes!.............
    Et comment fait-on la différence avec du langage familier ou Jamaicain, Creole...?

    JazzByChas Senior Member

    Le créole du Jamaica, ou le Créole d’Haiti sont different du AAVE. Ils sont des patois composé de langues de l’Africque, Angleterre, et du France et sont des patois de leurs droit propre.

    Le AAVE est un patois/argot uniquement américain!

    (...ou est geve pour expliquer la différence aux francophones natifs ?!? )

    se la péter? se la raconter? taper la frime? frimer?

    mec just by itself seems wrong? it should be mon mec in the sentences where you have just put "mec"?

    c'est en balaise de chez balaise is wrong. i should have highlighted that i was going a little over the top with that one :)

    just c'est balaise de chez balaise will do fine. i have seen it turned in to a noun too.. "c'est du balaise (de chez balaise)"

    "mec" is used alone when adressing someone : hé mec, t'as pas 100 balles ?
    "mon mec" means "my boyfriend" - a confusion you might not want to make ;)

    "Ball":
    (n) One Hundred; A “ball-thirty” is $130.00 (USD)
    Also "Meatball"; “Buck”

    If someone weights 150 lbs. you could say he weighs “a buck fifty” or “a ball fifty”; If someone has 100.00, you would say “he has a meatball.”
    Etymology: From a wad of bills adding up to $100.00, which resembles a round ball or a meatball.
    Cent: cent dollars/livres, etc.
    Étymologie : d’un tas de billets qui ressemblent à une balle ou une boulette.

    ================================================
    First, the above was a review to see if you have been studying your AAVE terms:

    Second, a new word:


    FO-FO:
    (n) A forum; a place where people gather to exchange ideas; thoughts, and insights
    e.g. (see above)
    (forum)

    Now, the translation:

    "Hey! How is everybody?
    Are you keeping everything under control, dealing with life on a daily basis?
    Are you escaping from the everyday grind (work/job) to relax a little here in the forum, perhaps to share a little knowledge?
    Well, take it easy/keep it a carefree as possible, and approach life circumspectly!

    Until next time,
    Chas

    In French there are many slang word for money.

    I can think of du fric, du pognon, de la thune or des thunes, des ronds, du blé, de l'avoine, du foin, de l'oseille, du pèze, du flouze

    I'd say nowadays the most common ones are fric, thune and blé

    It seems there was an article in the "Wall Street Journal" about a bohemian section of Paris. The article mentions how some of the young "hip" French people are called "les bobos," or bohemian bourgeoise....since the term "bo bo," as in "kickin it off da bo bo..." has been already mentioned, I thought I'd throw in a little more cultural information. :)

    Yes, "bobos" stand for "bourgeois-bohême", and describes a category of people who are wealthy but have attitude and ideas closer to left-wing philosophy... see there
    I'm not sure they would use such expressions as "Kickin’ it off da Bo-Bo" ! :p

    Now...I'm not so sure of all of that!

    If I were of the "bourgeois bohême", and chillin' in the 10ieme ou 11ieme arrondissements, which I was in the process of gentrifying, I would probably say to my “yuppie” (AE term) homies, “Hey y’all…let’s flow like the BoBo’s we are, get our Pinot Grigio on, and “kick it off da Bobo, ya heard?” :D

    NB: En regardant une “skank:” C’est un mot en anglais que signifie une femme qui se comporte comme une nymphomane très dégoutant ! Elle n’a pas d’élégance ni gout, ni discrimination sociale. Elle est une personne da la plus mauvais caractère.

    Aussi, Une révision:
