Photo du Jour


I searched our French dictionary and online dictionaries for an hour this morning, hoping to find the meaning of this word. Maybe it's Occitan?

If anyone knows, could you please tell me? Pin It

I know!
Funny, huh?

I just googled it and a site came up saying that it was a word from "auvergnat" (which I would imagine is the regional language of Auvergne??), and that it meant 'grenadier'...

I googled it this morning but maybe was half asleep because I couldn't find anything.
thanks for the help!

Migranier=grenadier, c'est correct

Loulou said...

géry,
merci mon ami!

And what does "grenadier" mean?

Loulou said...

donna,
a grenadier is a soldier
(at least that's what Google says!)
Géry, c'est correct?

Gill said...

Grenadier is a pomegranate, sold locally as grenadier à fleurs for the ornamental form or grenadier à fruits for the best fruiting variety
