Argot – French Slang

List of French slang

Listen to Anne's AUDIO

The French are very attached to slang, a language full of imagery they use on a daily basis. The Académie Française would love to regulate it, but it doesn’t really work. Languages evolve. With the arrival of a lot of people from North Africa, their lexicon enriched French as well. In the eighties, Verlan seeped in through the streets with the youth. It’s a bit outdated now for young people to use, but many Verlan words are now used in everyday French. And English words are perspiring nowadays.

A lot of those slang French words are really appropriate in most contexts. And that’s the list we’re working on today. I have also compiled other lists you can see at the bottom of this page, some of which I can’t be responsible for if you find yourself in a delicate situation using them.

You want to sound really French ? Check out this list of French slang, yet really okay to use with friends. They are the French slang words I hear more often.

  1. ø .... assurer .... to manage
  2. ø .... avoir les jetons .... to be scared
  3. ø .... bachoter .... to study (for an exam)
  4. f .... baffe .... whop, slap
  5. f .... bagnole .... ride, car
  6. m/f .... balaise .... great or difficult
  7. ø .... baliser .... to be scared
  8. f .... baraque .... dig, house
  9. f .... baston .... fight
  10. f .... bécane .... motorcycle, bike, computer
  11. f .... bicoque .... funky house
  12. m .... blanc .... white wine
  13. m .... bobard .... lie
  14. m/f .... borné/e .... stubborn
  15. ø .... bosser .... to work
  16. m .... bottin .... phone book
  17. m .... boulot .... job, work
  18. ø .... c’est le pied .... it’s great
