Wednesday Word: Chanteuse

chanteuse

[ˌSHänˈto͞oz]

NOUN

a female singer of popular songs, especially in a nightclub.

ORIGIN

French, from chanter: ‘sing’.


"Chanteuse" is one of those words that sounds very bougie, but easier than you may think to insert into general conversation.


If you sing in the car, shower, or while you are cleaning the house, you are, in my opinion, a "self-taught chanteuse". This is the perfect chance to compliment someone's voice, "Mary, I didn't know you were a chanteuse!" See?
