The French have finally added a word to the dictionary to describe their most famous expression of l’amour: the French kiss. The Petit Robert 2014 French dictionary added the verb “galocher,” which means to kiss with tongues. Previously, the French described French kissing literally, as in “kissing at length in the mouth,” the dictionary’s publisher explained. What a mouthful! Instead “galocher” will explain the amorous smooches, which take their name after the word for “ice skate,” as someone seems to think French kissing are like tongues sliding around the ice. It sounds much more elegant than in real life. Makes you wonder what took them so long? [NBC News] [Photo of French kissing via Shutterstock]
