29385: Clerie (reply): Re: 29377: Behrens: (ask) cornerstone (fwd)

Philippe Clerie <philippe@gcal.net>

Is there a Creole word for cornerstone ?

That would depend on the context! :-D

My first guess would be : _piès_

If you know Languichatte Débordus you'll understand the reference.

piès kay
piès l'ajan
piès fanm
piès téyat
piès twal
piès tè
pa gen sa piès!

With tongue firmly in cheek! :-D

My second approximation would be : _poto mitan_.

Not exactly a cornerstone but it conveys the general idea.



The trouble with common sense is that it is so uncommon.
