Here are some French words and phrases used in the book, translated into English. I hope it will prove helpful, if you are like me as I was before I began writing this book. My French was poor at best when
I began writing ‘Disfigured’, but since it is set in France, I felt my characters ought to toss out a French word here and there for verisimilitude. I found on-line English to French dictionaries very helpful! And my friend Janan helped me with the rest, as she does speak French, quite well.

If you come across a French word in the book and wonder what it means, look here at my handy glossary; most of the words are here except the ones that everyone already knows, like merci.
