Le Dico romand

If Le Dico romand could be defined, it would be a dictionary, a lexicon or a collection, depending on the genre. ECAL has given itself a playground of its own: to give contemporary form to the words that surround us. Welcome to French-speaking Switzerland!

Mathieu Daudelin, creator of the project and a graduate of ECAL, has delved into the richness of the Welch language to help you rediscover outdated or still current terms.

This instructive book brings together regional idioms and their definitions. The graphic design and layout play subtly with the remarkable archival work of Henry Suter, who has collected an impressive number of attested entries or reconstructed them by etymological analysis.
The edition highlights the links between the expressions, displays quirky quotes with a regional flavor, and offers a formative kouizze. An object that will inevitably leave you disappointed in good!

The icing on the cake is a preface by the French-speaking humorist Yann Marguet and an introduction by Pascal Singy, professor at the University of Lausanne. In short, you’ll have something for your gniaf!
