Word of the Week!

écoeurant: adjective

no direct English translation, but close to “nauseating,” as in anything that makes one want to vomit, especially something that is so sweet or rich or delicious it makes one want to hurl after consuming too much.

  1. I wonder if the etymology is “e” = “de” or “un”, “coeur” = “heart” : “de-hearting” = “so nauseated you’re about to de-heart i.e. throw up your heart”

What do you think?
