The French Have A Word For It
Posted by M.H. Forsyth
Merely a link today to this article in The Guardian about French neologisms. It includes the word attachiante, which is a portmanteau of attachant (charming) and chiant (bloody annoying) and means a lady that you can't live with and can't live without: beautiful yet unbearable, intoxicating but intolerable.
Such words are terribly necessary if you're a Frenchman.
