My three words of the day are these:
skirl: (n.) a shrill wailing sound; (v.) to produce a shrill wailing sound (often said of bagpipes)
copain: (French) buddy/mate
dais: a throne, platform, or seat of honor
Trial sentences follow. Today I’m breaking the rules and busting out dialogue and French, ’cause I’m a writer and Francophone and I can. Also, I need to practice my French.
1. Person A: “What is that infernal skirling?”
Person B: “Kid upstairs got a recorder.”
Person A: “Is he trying to play it or blow his nose with it?”
2. Après ce tapage horrible, mon copain et moi sortons pour un verre.
3. His science teacher stood on a platform, but it was no dais: he used it in order to reach the whiteboard.
Any other sentences, readers? 🙂
