  1. Well I've never heard those expressions before!  However, I grew up in Moncton and heard my share of Acadian French slang.  I wish I could remember some of the expressions.  They are quite interesting.  :-)

  2. Oh for sure there are some interesting slang associated with the Acadians. I love it! I have received communcations from people travelling to Québec and anxious to have their children practice their French resulting from French immersion classes. I always get nervous for those children because the reality is that their accents will cause them trouble. So, this is a bit of a practice for them to see if they can wrap themselves around this accent.

  3. I guess I'd have to say "Chutoute fourre" because I couldn't speak a word of French if I tried!  LOL   Fun post.
