    Bonjour,

    Quelle est le mot anglais (nom) qui désigne le mot "Le trinôme" ?

    Je crois que c'est "Trinomial" mais il me semble que c'est un adjectif.

    Ai-je raison ?

    Bien à vous

    either it's partner (like binome)
    or trinomial (polynomial of third order)
    hope i'm right, i check

    yep it's good
    trinomial is a noun
    (sorry mod fairy)

    I'm adding to this post ten years after the event, I know, but I've just come across it and wanted to say that trinôme is (I think) used quite often in French, unlike 'trinomial' (which I've never come across). In the same way that binôme means simply with a partner (en binômes – in pairs), trinôme would usually be translated simply as a group of three people.

    I've seen trinôme used to identify three words together: cool, calm and collected; lock, stock and barrel.

    Jim: interesting; I've not come across that use. It's a good word, in any case!

    Kirsty: I should clarify that I saw trinôme in a French language textbook, not in English. Trinomial, though, does appear in my American Heritage College dictionary, 3rd edition.
