Top definition
A combonation of two languages: Français and Anglaise (French and English).
Franglais can be either a French conversation peppered with English words, or vice versa.
It is commonly used by French teenagers.
It does not necessarily mean that they have forgotten a word, although using Franglais is a good coverup if they do forget the translation of some words.
The words used DO have proper translations.
Gina: Ah mon amie, veux-tu un beer?
Moi: Non merci, je suis le stuffed. As-tu regardé le episode de Newport Beach hier?!
Gina: Mais bien sûr! Ben McKenzie est un hunk hein?
Moi: Je pense que obviously.

Gina: Want a beer?
Me: No thanks, I'm stuffed. Did you watch the O.C. yesterday?!
Gina: Duh! Ben McKenzie is a total hottie eh?

Used most commonly by Canadian high school students, Franglais (French + Anglais, known also as Frenglish) is a mixture of the two languages in order to suit
a) the speaker's knowledge of the language
b) the speaker's laziness in regards to full translation
or c) the speaker's desire to piss off their French/English teacher.

Franglais has been known to be a diplomatic language between Quebec-the rest of Canada students, and students capable of speaking balanced Franglais are generally considered to be bilingual.

Combination of "français" (French) and "anglais" (English), referred to also as Frenglish.

It has two meanings:

1. An Anglophone (or native English speaker) who speaks French as a second language that is:

a) too lazy to think of the correct translation for what they're saying, and therefore incorporate English words into their sentences, or

b) make a direct word-for-word translation of what they wish to say, in which case the translated term doesn't make sense in French.

A common thing done by French Immersion students, especially in Canada.

2. English words that are also used in French.
1. a) French speaker: "Alors, est-ce que tu veux le jus d'orange ou l'eau?" ("So, do you want orange juice or water?")

Franglais speaker: "Je ne care pas." ("I don't care.")

b) Franglais speaker: "Yo, longtemps, pas voir!" (Word-for-word translation of "Yo, long time, no see!")

French speaker: "Quoi...?"

2. "Le soccer," "le hot dog" and "le ski" are examples of English words that are used in the French language.
