sometimes english is simple and others it has bullshit words like "miscellaneous"

@dzuk @Siphonay Yeah, all those miscellaneous words can leave me flummoxed; and don't even get me started on coinage :P

@dzuk @Siphonay Je ne vois pas ce que tu veux dire 😇

(“I don't se what you mean” in French, which has all the silent letters and smooshing the end of a word into the start of the next one)

@kellerfuchs @Siphonay *grooooaaaans*, yeah, a lot of phrasing segments surrounding 'que' just kills me.

@Siphonay @dzuk 😹

To be fair, I don't think that's super idiomatic?
At least, I would just say “Qu'est-ce” (“What is it”, literally) or “Qu'est-ce que c'est” (“what is it that it is?” :wtf:)
