    Hi everybody!

    How would you say : "le brouillard s'immiscent dans les moindres recoins"...

    I have no idea...

    Thanks for your answers.

    It's best if you make at least some attempt and give context. However, my guess is "the fog crept into even the smallest corners" (depending on context!)

    Thanks Clairet.

    I always try to make an attempt but this time I had absolutely no idea...

    Thanks for your answer.

    To creep into = s'immiscer (in this context)

    maybe "crept into" was a bit too metaphorical (though this is a common metaphor for fog in BE). Perhaps "penetrated" would be a bit more literal?

    Yes, I would also say: "the fog penetrated into the minutest crevices"
    Note: Minute = very small

    You can also say: "… into the smallest nook and cranny"
