Meaning and difference of the word faite vs faîte


Recommended Posts

What does "faite" mean?

What does "faîte" mean?

What is the difference between the two if any?

Is there any cultural significance?

Does either word have any slang or connotations associated?

What does each word make someone feel?  Is it just a basic everyday word or is one rarely used or for a special occasion?

Ok great, thanks for the response!

So that makes sense - so is faite the past tense of faire and would be read as "made"?

I looked up synonyms of faîte with the accent - it said things like ridge (crête), zenith (zénith), summit (apogée), top (haut) etc so it almost seems as if it is talking about a high point which as you said would only be referred to in roofing which is the most common thing to reference as a high point in every day life unless you're a mountain climber.  So rarely used,  but if someone made reference to it as one of the synonyms would that make sense because it's rarely used enough to insert a new meaning/interpretation of the word?

Yes exactly  (but feminine form)

Without the full sentence it's difficult to find the meaning for a word that is almost never used  XD

Ahh ok thanks makes sense.

This is for something launching tentatively Spring 2021.

I've gotten a few responses from other friends and posts corroborating more or less what you also stated so that is good to hear.  To be determined if our interpretation will land at all but we'll see.

If you're interested in sharing your Instagram or any social media handle we'll notify you once it's official.

      Hi
      Does anyone know of any discord servers for language learning where people actually use the voice chat rooms to speak?
      I have joined a few but the voicechat features are almost never used.
      I'm a woman who is learning French, Esperanto and just starting Mandarin. English is my native language.
       
      Thanks in advance

      Hey there!
      I'm looking for someone to revive my French with. I was raised in France until I was three and return there often, but the disuse while living in America has nonetheless made it embarrassingly rusty! If you are looking for an English speaker to exchange with, please let me know through PM.
      Cheers!

      大家好!I wanted to share my free pop-up dictionary that allows you to learn Chinese while watching your favorite shows on Netflix and reading on the web. You can bookmark new words and export them to flashcard decks. Both ‘s’ and ‘b’ will save/bookmark words.
      You can download the extension for free here:

      Here’s also a short video tutorial on how to use it:

      Hello linguaholics!
      I'm conducting a survey on Chinese language learners, to understand how we discover new words in the language.
      Your responses would really be invaluable to my Master thesis, which is centered around Chinese vocabulary learning and it's aimed at the creation of a prototype
      .
      The survey shouldn't take more than 5-6 minutes of your time and it's completely anonymous.

      If you have any comments or want to share your personal experience on discovering new vocabulary, we can also have a discussion here of course!
