BOOK SYNOPSIS

How long has it been since you\'ve eaten gombo de babine?Are you being complimented or insulted if you're told you have fesses de moiselle? Why should you be worried if someone is keeping un petit veau for you? Tonnerre mes chiens! has the answers. This glossary of Louisiana French figures of speech, containing over 1200 expressions collected from 23 South Louisiana parishes, not only explains the metaphorical meaning of these figures of speech, but also explores their origins and compares them to similar expressions in other French-speaking countries. The collection is presented in a straightforward, easy-to-read format, which allows even non-readers of French to follow along. Tonnerre mes chiens! is a must for students interested in Cajun French, language teachers wanting to incorporate Cajun culture into their lessons, and French teachers everywhere who want to know more about the variety of French spoken along the bayous and on the prairies of south Louisiana.
