Another transation question. “Adieu”, in french, normally implies that you won’t ever meet again the other person.
Dictionnaries translate it as “farewell”, but I’m unconvinced since it seems to me that “farewell” doesn’t usually imply such a thing.
On second thought, I’m wondering if there’s an equivalent to this word in languages other than english (and changing the thread title accordingly).
On third tought : in southern France, “adieu” can be used to mean plainly “good bye” or even “hello”. As a result, I’m also wondering about the usual meaning of “adieu” in canadian french.
