Here is another collection of French words that I learned recently. That is to say, it’s a bunch of words that I learned just now after ordering the catalog for the PhotoQuai 2011 exhibition that Mom and I saw along the banks of the Seine in Paris. It was a good exhibit, and I wanted to buy the catalog. Alas, the museum shop was closed for lunch, so I had to wait until we got home.
In the end I had to get the book from Amazon.fr, since the US store didn’t sell it (except at an inflated third-party reseller’s price). After placing my order, I poked around for a few minutes, noting words that were unfamiliar to me.
Here you go; a collection of French words about buying, selling, ordering, and e-commerce beyond acheter, vendre, and commander.
