Pride and Prejudice; "And those are the words of a gentleman? From the moment I met you your aroggance and conceit and your selfish disdain for the feelings of other made me realize that you are the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.

  • Question: So in English you have sayings for levels of intoxication. Stoned, tipsy, wasted, smashed, drunk, blacked out, passed out, etc. What are those in French? Thanks! - Anonymous
  • Answer:



    The last question about that was not answered by me but by awesomefrench maybe the greatest blog for French. You really should ask there too, French is not my mother language.

    However I can help you with some:

    Ivre is the more cult word for drunk. The name is ivresse. Like in English you can be drunk on power, of revenge etc. Soûl/soûle, or saoul/saoule is another appropriated word for drunk. A more technical term woul be être énivré or s’énivre.

    A more slang word is bourré or less common gris or noir. Beurré also exists.In slang to become very drunk is se déchirer la gueule. Prendre une cuite is to have a drinking session. When you’re so drunk you have loss consciousness you are ivre-mort. 

    When you’re tipsy you are éméché or pompette, though I’ve only heard the latter once.

    Here is a compilation of terms related to intoxication in French. 

    Being French, may I add a few things?

    First, ivre is a higher level of language and more formal than soûl(e)/saoul(e). You also have the verb (sesoûler/saouler.

    The verb is s’enivrer, without accent because it’s pronounced /sãnivʁe/. Obviously the past participle/adjective is then enivré, pronounced the same. These, as ivre, are also higher level of language and more formal.

    être déchiré(e) can mean either “to be really drunk” or “to be high” (on drugs).
