  • this list is a very good idea.
    hein ?
    pas de quoi !
    la paix
    la ferme = shut up

    mise à jour ok :tick:
    tu parles!
    j'ai envie d'ecrire plus mais les mots sont des grands mots:D

    mise à jour ok :tick:
    d'accord, voyons...

    Bof. = Whatever or Who cares.
    Hein? = Huh?
    Remarque... = Look (here) or Listen (here)
    Pas de quoi = No big thing or Don't worry about it
    Zut = Dang (it) or Darn (it) or Drat (it)
    La paix = Hush up or Lemme alone
    La ferme = Zip it or Shut up
    Tu parles! = Whatever or Get out of here
    Alors = So (what)

    I'd love to know if there is an equivalent for "Bite me".
    remarque, pas de quoi, bite me, la paix, la ferme, tu parles, alors
    ne sont pas des interjections :)
    Je ne sais pas si mes traductions seront correctes, mais j'essayerai
    errr or erm = ben?? (on hésite)
    you know/ y'know = tu sais??
    oh my god = oh mon dieu
    like = sais pas, ce mot est utilisé partout dans leurs diologues, les jeunes
    e.g. it was, like, an amazing trip. le mot ne veux dire rien. c'est juste là.

    like -> tu sais, souvent abbrégé en t'sais (tic de langage qui traduit d'après moi très bien à 'like' dans ce sens là) :D
    I think "quoi" would be a quasi-equivalent of "like" as used where I'm from, i.e. stuck at the end of phrases without any particular meaning... vous voyez ce que je veux dire quoi?
