Meet Joline. She’s from Nova Scotia, but even better, she’s acadian. My friend Remi and I have gotten obsessed with Acadian french. In a few seconds, you probably will too. Here is a list of Acadian phrases:

  •  asteure: now (Fr: maintenant, à cette heure, désormais)
  • boloxer: to confuse, disrupt, unsettle (Fr: causer une confusion, déranger l’ordre régulier et établi)
  • cotchiner: to cheat (Fr: tricher)
  • faire zire: to gross out (Fr: dégouter)
  •  Oh wow, I have to stop. You know you want more though. Go here for your fix.
