Graver ou brûler un CD/DVD

Au Canada, on entend souvent “brûler un CD”, termes empruntés de l’anglais “to burn a CD.” D’après Le Petit Robert, le verbe brûler veut dire “détruire par le feu.” Comme ce n’est pas bien de brûler vos CD, utilisez plutôt le verbe graver.

    Like here in Mtius we tend to translate creole words into french. The phrase “mo la tete fer mal” in creole becomes upon translation in french “ma tete a mal”. In English it is “my head aches”. So literally the translation should be ok.

    Keep it up Pat. Nice blog!
