Homophones on the métro

March 31st, 2016

Today, we were on the Métro 7 on our way to school, when my daughter asked at which station we were. I told her, and we looked at the métro map, and I read the names of all the stations we had passed or would pass. One of them is called Place Monge.

Her: “Das ist ein Platz, da wird alles aufgefressen.” (That’s a place where everything is eaten.) The pronunciation of Monge is very close to mange (eat!).
