en goguette – Today’s mot du jour came about after a class I had last week with Greg, one of my dear students. It can’t really be translated literally, although, because of the ending in -ette – which makes it fenmine, I suppose the word gogue used to exist in French.

en goguette  means ‘ready to have a good time’, ‘gallivanting’. en goguette is an old-fashion expression, yet it’s still pretty common. It’s often used with the verbs ‘partir’ or ‘être’.

  • « Ils sont partis en goguette alors qu’il faut qu’ils aillent au boulot. Ils vont se faire virer ! »
    • “They’re out gallivanting when they should be at work. They’re going to get fired!”
