how should i go about adding french to my work? my character speaks french and i want to add some french to the story (i'm writing it in english). are there any websites/tips you can give me that'll mean i can add phrases etc for when my said french character does slip into her native language?
- French Slang Terms
- Using foreign words in your fiction
- When a different language comes in
- Worldwidewriting might have french contributors
- Writing multilingual characters
startrekrenegades said: Yikes. If you don’t understand the nuances of the French language I would NOT suggest having your character ‘slip into’ it because it will come across as awkward, confused, and very clearly not natural.
This is important. French is a difficult language and the possibility of getting something wrong is highly likely. The best way to go would be having someone to consult.
