Hey Frenchie,

I have a question for you that I have been wondering about for years...

For a brief time in the mid nineties I was stationed at CFB St. Jean, and being so I had many Québécois commanders who swore at us in Québécois or Jaoul... or whatever...
One word in particular that I am wondering about... sounds like Esti or maybe it is two words... Es-ti... I think it is somewhat equivalent to Shit or Crap.
Do you have any idea what word I might be referring to? I've asked other Canadians who can speak French (but are not Québécois) and they had no idea.

It's a Québécois swear, 'ostie' but it can sound like 'osti', 'esti' or just 'sti'. It can have many meanings ans uses.

Stand alone, it is like 'fuck' or 'shit', just a swear.
Can be use to put emphasis on something, like; 'fucking' moron.
And more, but hard to give examples in english...

You probably also heard: criss, tabarnak, câlisse, calvaire, etc... rich and colorful language wink

notwithstanding that the supposed "swearing" here is neither understood or used by indonesians , it is trash jakartanese used by wannabes who have no culture .

All of the crap posted on the "indonesian swearing " thread some time back is either meaningless or only spoken by the worst sort of blok m trash .

learn to speak the basics of indonesian before trying such rubbish , and that is equally valid to a number of the WNI posters too.

this is true. indonesians are really, really bad at swearing and cussing.

and it's not just indonesian vocabulary that is the "limiting" factor, but something deeper within.

maybe it's that many indonesian cultures demand that individuals maintain the appearance of self control and politeness that "holds back" the development of swearing and cussing.

Very good , unfortunately about a useful as Swiss German , but memorable nonetheless . I'll be sure to update my french dictionary with it , in case I ever have a desire to go somewhere and be bored to death.

You don't have to bother - even that is spelt wrong , I rest my case about learning to speak the language properly (yes and how to spell it) before even thinking about learning the seedier side .

After travelling through a few places , one of the first things that comes up from ignorant expats is "how to say 'fuck off' in keswahilli ?" or whatever the local language might be - they can't phone a cab , but if by chance they happen to find one , then at least they can tell him to fuck off , really good that .

Forget it , Indonesian doesn't support swearing with any degree of refinement , there are a few unpleasantries that can be uttered in Javanese , so why bother ?

Another example of kampungese boso Jakarta.

I said: "Nobody cares about what you think, you fucking twit." So stop replying, jerk. I don't care anymore of what you can think of Canada or french-Canadians, so fuck-off. It's people like you who make learning how to say 'fuck off' in many languages useful. If you're just a bit smart, you'll realise that any reply from you will prove me right. Check mate, mate.

North American spelling....I prpeare my reports in UK English, an American compiles a number of reports and uses US English on spell check.

The report goes to a scottish guy whose secretary runs UK English spell check on it, and lo and behold, its back to where it started.

But it's amazing how much US English has infiltrated the minds of Brits and Aussies. One of the hats I wear is editing a magazine a few days a month and we've decided on exclusive use of UK English as our style. Most contributors are Brits/Aussies, but it's me -- who grew up on US English -- who is constantly changing their USisms back to UK English. Just shows the ubiquitousness of American pop culture I guess, when some Brit writers no longer even realize their using US English.
