What's the literal translation of "hors d'oeuvres"?


Search
: hors d'oeuvres

Why
: I told Chandler (re: some old married screenwriters) we should "coup them hors de l'eau." Hors means "out."

Answer: "Outside of the main meal"! Because oeuvres means "meal." But also, oeuvre means "work," so maybe you could call them "out of works" if you feel like it.

The More You Know
: Maybe play the sound at the bottom of this page to hear the correct pronunciation of hors-d'œuvre. Most beautiful language in the world my ass.
