What does the French adjective ‘ouf’ mean? How is it used in a sentence?

Listen to Anne’s AUDIO

Ouf is Verlan slang for fou, which means crazy, wild. If you look carefully, the word “ouf” has the same letters as the word “fou”, but spelled somewhat backwards. That's the principle of Verlan slang. Verlan has become very popular over the last few years.

  • « C'est ouf aujourd'hui. J'ai commencé tranquillement par un clique sur internet et je me retrouve assise dans un avion pour Tahiti. Ouf je te dis. »
    "It's a crazy day today. I started quietly with a click on the Web, and I'm now sitting down in a plane to Tahiti. Crazy, I tell you."
