Une sorcière - A Witch or a Bitch?
What does the French word ‘ sorcière ’ mean? How is it used in a sentence?
une sorcière - literally a witch - is often used as the slang American English uses 'a bitch': a malicious, unpleasant, selfish person. And guess what, the masculine for sorcière, un sorcier, actually means a good wizard. Interesting how the feminine word is really negative, and the masculine word very positive.
- « Va rien lui demander, c’est une vraie sorcière, celle-là. »
- “Don’t go and ask her for anything. She’s a real bitch.”
