Présentation de l'éditeur

We are so used to hearing about all the French words that are found in English and about how purist the French are about their language, that we don't realize how many English words have migrated into French.

You will be astonished by how many English words have been adopted into French. French is inundated with them! Swamped with them!
Most are native English words, but surprisingly, some were originally French words which moved into English long ago, evolved a different meaning, and then moved back to French with the new meaning as anglicismes. English words aren't always taken into French with the same spelling and usage as they have in our language. Therefore, for example, you’ll encounter le week-end, which has gained a hyphen, and le warning which doesn’t mean “the warning” in a general sense, but specifically means the emergency lights or flashers on a car.

Some migrated words are specific to certain sports, like l’uppercut or le football, or to other activities, such as playing bridge, while other words, which are general in English, have only specific meanings in French. An example is le slice, which only refers to golf and tennis, and not to a slice of melon, for instance.

Some are so well integrated into French that the average Frenchman wouldn’t be aware that they are words of English origin. At the other extreme are words that that same Frenchman would recognize immediately as English words even though he uses them without reflection (much as we would say ravioli and pizza are Italian words, or taco and tamale are Mexican Spanish words).

All these words will be marked as anglicisme or mot anglais in a French dictionary like Le Petit Robert, and the use of some of them would be frowned on in formal speech or writing, but many are very widely used in normal casual speech. You'll find it a fascinating book.


I think your books are wonderful. You have made a fantastic contribution to the French language profession. --- Prof. Judy Baughin, Raymond Walters College

You have done a real service to learners of French...This is important work. --- Prof. John Romeiser, U. of Tennessee, Knoxville

I have to say your Key Words and Expressions is just the kind of book I would have liked to have had when I was teaching myself French oh-so-many years ago. --- Professor John Moran, Director of Language Programs, NYU

If you really want to learn spoken French, you need this book (Key Words). You'll need other books as well, you'll need audio materials, and you'll need live language experience. But this book is a necessity. ---- reader reviewer amazon.com

I love the Faux Amis, especially the relaxed, conversational presentation. ---- Professor Norman Shapiro, Wesleyan U.

Your little books are great! ---- Professor AG Fralin, Washington and Lee U.

I absolutely *love* Faux Amis…It's so well done. --- Professor Herta Rodina, Ohio U.

I love your books! They are easy to navigate, and they are extremely useful to non-native French speakers. ---- Professor John Turvaville, U. of Tennessee, Knoxville

Perhaps the most amazing thing about this book (Key Words) is that it took until 2007 for anyone to think of writing it! ---- reader reviewer amazon.com

The books are excellent.---- Professor Luke Bouvier, U. of Massachusetts, Amherst

I've been perusing Key Words for the past couple of days and it's great fun… What a great idea for a book! --- Professor Herta Rodina, Ohio U.

This (Key Words)is easily one of the best and most important French resources I own (and I've got dozens of them)... It's amazing, absolutely amazing how this book has improved my understanding of spoken French. – reader reviewer, amazon.com

I wish Rosenthal had written Rules for the Gender of French Nouns twenty years ago when I was a student. – Stephen Hedge, review in "The French Review"

Saul is retired and lives with his wife (and his cat) for a part of each year in France, splitting his time between Provence and Bretagne.

2. Speaking Better French, More Key Words and Expressions

2. More French You Use Without Knowing It

3. French Words You Use Without Knowing It, The Combined Book

His goal isn't to write textbooks, but rather to write books which are interesting and even FUN to read. He hopes that his books will make learning more about French a real pleasure for you.
