In the past two posts, we’ve looked at some language overheard on the radio:
- « on fait tout », where tout was pronounced toute
- the verb maganer, which means to wreck, ruin
- the adjective dispendieux, used in the sense of expensive
- the verb magasiner, which means to shop
A speaker on the radio was talking about an April Fool’s joke played on someone. He described the joke as being vraiment pas fin, but funny nonetheless.
C’est vraiment pas fin, mais ça fait rire!
It’s really not nice [what they did], but it’s funny!
Fin is the masculine form, and fine the feminine.
This adjective can be used to describe a person: fin / pas fin and fine / pas fine mean nice / not nice.
T’es pas fin avec moi.
T’es pas fine avec moi.
You’re not nice to me.
You’re not good to me.
The feminine form fine might resemble an English word, but it’s not. Be sure to pronounce it as a French word. The same goes for the masculine fin.
