Interesting. In Canada we say "bicyclette" for bicycle. Based on the Wikipedia article, it seems to be the preferred word in France as well. "Une bicyclette, ou un vélo" ~ Bicyclette -- fr.wikipedia.org

In common usage vélo is way more common. Bicyclette is formal/old fashioned.

Bicyclette is the normal and formal world (I'm French).

But Vélo is easier to say and to write so people tend to say and write it.

I think Julotek is right here.

I've done a lot of cycling in France and in my experience it was almost always vélo. Bicyclette wouldn't necessarily sound strange, but neuf times out of dix people used vélo.

"carnet" is also a valid translation of notebook and it has 6 letters and starts with "ca"

Level 61
Apr 16, 2022
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't "carnet" more like "booklet" than "notebook", which would be "cahier"?
+1
Level 60
Apr 19, 2022
Not really. There is overlap but carnet would be closer to notebook. Like a carnet de voyages is a travelog that you note stuff down in, and Doris Lessing's "The Golden Notebook" is "Le Carnet d'Or" in French.

Nice quiz. I guess it’s a neat way to brush up on vocabulary.

I only managed 7 this time but I will be coming back for more.

Although I came close with 2 others…, spelled ‘rarely’ the Spanish way and switched the ‘g’ and ‘n’ in ‘Spain’

I haven't had it come up in the quiz, but I'm guessing this is about nombre vs. numéro. Both translate to English as number, but nombre refers to quantity (count) while numéro refers to the name of the numeral.

The exact translation of "Ice Cream" is "Crème Glacée".

"Glace" stands for "Ice, Sorbet, Ice Cream, Mirror".

TBH, lots of French use the word "Glace" to designate a frozen sweet, including both ice cream and sorbet. But when a French says that he want a "Crème Glacée", he is asking for an "Ice Cream" and nothing else, therefore, it is the most accurate translation.

This comment only applies to French from France. I do not know how it goes in the other French speaking countries, and as French is way bigger than France, it is likely that my statement does not apply to all French speakers. But as you put the French flag in the picture of the quiz, I am going to assume that we focus on French form France.

Very cool quiz nonetheless ! ^^

Help me out here: is it to run, as in “to run a company” or “to run a race?”

Level 63

'Courir' is to run a race. To run a company, you would use 'diriger'.

Also accept nouvelle (as in Nouvelle-Zélande) for "new"? And is it worth accepting either masculine or feminine forms of adjectives in general?
+1
Level 63
Oct 24, 2021
Good question, but that's a minefield I've happily avoided by indicating the length of word: 'nouvelle' has 8 letters, not the 7 required. The masculine singular is the standard form to use when translating an adjective without context. It's also the first entry in a dictionary translation, with feminine and plural alterations given afterwards.

Actually, Rule is Reigner. Ruler is Règle.

Level 63
May 24, 2022
Actually, reigner is not a word in French. The verb 'to rule' is régner. But this quiz asks for the noun 'rule', as you can see from the (n.) after the hint. The answer is correct as is.

What do you mean? It makes perfect sense. Being French, it's possible that you are not understanding the clue which is written in English.
