French to English gouffre

Dictionary entry: gouffre

Regarding eating a lot, instead of hollow legs, I would say bottomless pit is more common.

    Thank you for this suggestion. I can't say I've heard it myself (whereas to me, having hollow legs is very common), but it makes sense and I would instantly understand it if someone said it, so I've added it to the possible translations. It will appear online next time the dictionaries are updated.
