Today’s words once again come from the news. I’m not going to link to a particular article, though, since I think you’ll find these words come up far too often.
- l’otage (m.) – hostage
- l’enlèvement (m.) – kidnapping, abduction, or capture
- enlever – to kidnap or capture
However, enlever has additional meanings including: to remove, to take down or take off. It can also be used reflexively; s’enlever means to come off (like paint) or come out (like a stain), or to be detachable.
