Lost in translation
Today's French word of the day from Transparent Language is: 
enjeu, English translation: stakePart of speech: noun
Example sentence 
French: Les enjeux liés à l'eau ne font que s'intensifier dans cette région. 
English: The water related stakes are only intensifying in the region.

Not quite in the league of "my postillion has been struck by lightning" but equally baffling.

Hear it from a native French speaker at: enjeu: example

  1. Is this perhaps a coded message from the French Brigade of the Provisional Wing of the KACT?
