Awesomely Canadian. Formidable! Americans: the word is the French foh-mee-DAH-bley with a meaning closer to “fantastic” than English for-MID-a-bl.
Too true! After I posted this, I realized that it probably made more sense to people with a bit of a background in French language. Thanks for clarifying the meaning and pronunciation!
I always think of “formidable” as the French version of “awesome!”
Just like Les Miserables. Describes miserable ones or wretched people. In english it doesn’t make much sense to just say “The Miserables.” I don’t have a background in french but I just assumed that this title had a similar variation as “Les Mis…” and got the joke.
