depressing thoughts – French expression

What does ” des idées noires ” mean? How do you say ‘ depressing thoughts ’ in French? How is it pronounced? How is it used in a French sentence? Listen to Anne, a French native say it at FrenchHour.com.

des idées noires – some ideas black. In today’s French, des idées noires is used mainly with 2 verbs: AVOIR (to have) and BROYER (to grind, to crush).

I’d say that

  • AVOIR des idées noires means ‘to have depressing thoughts’,
  • BROYER des idées noires means ‘to brood ‘.

Try using this expression at least 2 times today.

« La Toussaint lui fait avoir des idées noires. »

“All Saint’s Day makes her/him have depressing thoughts.”
