french expression.
pomme de discorde > Le sujet d’une dispute.
L'une des pommes de discorde a tourné autour d'OCS, la chaîne cinéma du premier opérateur télécom français, diffuseur notamment de la série à succès «Game of Thrones».

I would like to join this group. I have been using Assimil, NFWA. Currently I am in lesson 28 and look forward to finish it and start watching French YouTubes with/without subtitles. Maybe I will do some Anki at the side, maybe not, it will depend on the roughness of the transition to native materials.

Smarter Than the Average Smat/Smatte

Recently, I complimented a cherished acquaintance of mine by saying that he was “smarter than the average smat/smatte.” Some of you may be sufficiently comfortable with Québécois slang so as to detect the intended sense of this bilingual phrasing. The word “smat”, for which an alternative spelling might be “smatte”, is a deformed Québécois pronunciation of the English “smart” denoting “nice, sympathetic, intelligent” and the like. Generally speaking, it is used as a compliment as in “elle est vraiement smat, celle-là.” However, it can be used ironically as in “C’est un vrai smat, celui-là. C’est un osti de smat!” indicating that the so-described person is “too smart for their own good.” Careful attention to context, the speaker’s tone of voice and facial expression give clues as to his/her intentions … “t’es un vrai smatte, toé-là!”, if delivered with pursed lips, should not be taken as a compliment!
