    Bonjour REMINDER,


    c'est l'automne ici et il pleut.
    La belle Belgique est un peu grise aujourd'hui.
    Quel est votre pays? Quelle est votre langue maternelle ?


    Votre formule mathématique me semble bien exacte.




    Bonne journée !
    Frank.

    beste groeten - sincères salutations - kindest regards - atentamente - mit freundlichen Grüßen

    Bonjour Reminder! Bonjour Frank!...or as we say 'round here: HOWDY!

    I tried to decipher what Reminder wrote and I am hesitantly guessing that she(?) found another definition of gigolo that has to do with life style and travel? Could you translate it for me, please.

    We already knew that Reminder has mastered English and Spanish and it would appear that she(?) has a pretty good handle on French as well.



    PS: I put the ? on "she" because I was recently embarrassed to learn, after all these years, that Gentle is not a she but a he. It now occurs to me that "reminder" is also gender neutral. I hope I have not been wrong again

    Vicente, caro amigo

    Reminder wrote : Gigolo = (style de vie bien aisé) + (détermination de ne point travailler)
    meaning : Gigolo = (easy lifestyle) + (determined to never work at all)

    -
    All these languages ...
    do you know that in Antwerp (where I live) more than 150 different languages are spoken nowadays, this is true !
    I can't even name 150 languages !
    but then...
    I'm just a gigolo...

    Cheerio !
    Frank.

    I've never had any doubt about you Frank! So am I, by the way.

    That's very interesting. That's an awful lot! Do you mean that there are 150 languages that are widely spoken in the city...that would be a communication nightmare...or is it that there are that many known to be spoken at different levels or places. Do you have a lot of ethnic enclaves throughout Antwerp?

    How did you come up with that figure? I bet New York City would have a pretty high number as well. Antwerp is your capital verdad?

    Vicente,


    I cannot retrace where I read about these 150 languages,
    but official documents state that there are between 170 and 180 different nationalities residing in Antwerp (city).


    Twenty years back, this was not the case.
    The main language in Antwerp is Flemish, next there's French and English.




    Brussels is our capital, Antwerp is our main port.

    Hey, I sound like Wikipedia !
    Frank.

    Bonjour Reminder,
    Un peu en retard
    Quand j'ai appris des mots du lunfardo comme gavión, fiolo, cafishio, ou acamalar, j'ai pensé au style de vie qu'on attribue aux gigolos, ou aux chulos comme on dit dans d'autres pays du continent américain.

    ¡Muy bien!

    No obstante, en esta comparación de términos, en la definición en francés de gigoló no se menciona el negocio de la prostitución, un elemento esencial en las definiciones de "cafisho" y "chulo".

    Me remito a la definición en francés de "gigolo" que aparece en este hilo.

    cafisho
    1. (Uruguay) proxeneta

    proxeneta
    1. Persona que obtiene beneficios de la prostitución de otra persona.

    chulo
    8. rufián (hombre dedicado al tráfico de la prostitución)

    Sí, están un poco lejos, pero me parece que en el imaginario colectivo todo se mezcla un poco.

    ¡Qué gran verdad!

    El imaginario colectivo "acuña" términos y nuevas acepciones a diario. Justo en este momento, estoy tratando de dilucidar el nuevo significado de "puntero", que reconozco como objeto pero lo veo usado con una persona. ¡Otro sentido que se acuña popularmente!
