putain de

FrenchEdit

PronunciationEdit

AdjectiveEdit

putain de (plural putains de)

  1. (slang, vulgar) fucking (as an intensifier)
    J'ai passé un putain de bon moment.
    I had a fucking great time.

Usage notesEdit

This is not a noun phrase, but an adjective phrase; indeed, the gender of the article depends on that of the second noun: un putain de restaurant, not **une putain de restaurant. Compare drôle de for a similar behaviour, as well as espèce de.
