    Hi, cfu507.

    I suppose it means she will someday have all the characteristics of a Frenchwoman (whatever they may be)

    If I tell someone she is a lady, with all the word implies, I would probably mean that she has fine manners, acts and moves with grace, is well-educated, etc. (basically, everything I consider a lady should be like).

    Thank you Trisia,

    Your example was helpful.
    1. Can I say: "maybe someday you will be a Frenchwoman with all the word implies"?
    2. Would it be preferable to my original sentence?

    Actually, I think it should have been "with all that the word implies." And I would honestly prefer something such as "in the full sense of the word."

    I'm not familiar with this expression and/or its usage, I only tried to interpret it...

    (So it would be a good idea to wait for better answers :D)

    I wonder...........I am more familiar with "all that implies".

    I must confess that I sense some "tone" in this sentence, it seems to refer not only to the positive traits, but also the negative ones, and probably more on the negative ones, I must say. Or at the very least, I think it's used in a humorous way, like this:

    But I am not ruling out the possibility of a neutral tone, I am just thinking out loud :D
