Une crispation [kris-pa-sh-o]

  1. A spasm or twitch
  2. A contraction
  3. (Psychological) tenseness

The word crispation comes from the verb crisper (to clench).

You can crisper quelqu’un (get on someone’s nerves), in which case you’d be pretty crispant (irritating)

Parlez-vous Francais?

Any of you lovely people speak French at least a little?

I used to be quite good at it when I used to visit years back and studied it at school, but now I’ve forgotten a lot of it and would like a bit of practice.

So anyone up for listening and answering my poor French?
