    English base really

    It seems to me that the dictionary may be missing a sense to reflect an adverbial usage that's very common in everyday speech? We often use "really" as the intensifier of a verb: I really like chocolate; I really feel obligated to help out; I really think it's important to do XYZ; I really...

    French to English tambour

    tambour nmf (personne qui joue du tambour) drummer n Mon grand-père était tambour dans la fanfare municipale. ⓘ He's the drummer in my brother's band. This sentence would not translate back to 'tambour' but to 'batteur', who plays 'la batterie' (like Ringo Starr) and not 'le tambour'.

    English to Spanish knock it off

    The best translation to Spanish I'd say is "¡Vale ya!" o "¡Ya vale!". Sometimes people'd say "ya te vale" but this expression has a connotation of one's personal opinion about other people's behaviour more than the desire of them stopping doing it
