Get the vo­cab: feuille

Mean­ing a sheet of pa­per or leaf, feuille also means a gossip rag when talk­ing about the printed press (such as Le Ca­nard En­chaîné). Être dur de la feuille means to be hard of hear­ing. For those who en­joy a clas­sic game of rock, pa­per, scis­sors, the French equiv­a­lent is pierre, feuille, ciseaux. As in English, when some­one is very scared and shak­ing with fear, you can use the ex­pres­sion: trem­bler comme une feuille.
