The face

Après le corps, voici les différentes parties du visage en français.

After the body, here are the different parts of the face in French.

The different parts of the face in French
  • les cheveux (m) = hair
  • l’oeil / les yeux (m) = eye(s)
  • la joue = cheek
  • le menton = chin
  • la bouche = mouth
  • le nez = nose
  • l’oreille (f) = ear
  • le front = forehead
  • la dent = tooth
  • la langue = tongue
  • la lèvre = lip
  • le sourcil = eyebrow
  • les cils (m) = eyelashes
  • la pupille = pupil

Notez que le L du mot “sourcil” ne se prononce pas, alors que le L du mot “cil” se prononce !

Note that the L in the word “sourcil” is not pronounced, while the L in the word “cil” is pronounced !

Notez aussi que “l’œil – un œil” devient “les yeux – des yeux” au pluriel et que “les cheveux” est toujours au pluriel pour parler de la chevelure. Si vous dites “le cheveu”, cela veut dire un seul cheveu (a piece of hair).

Note also that “l’oeil – un oeil” becomes “les yeux – des yeux” in plural and that “les cheveux” is always in plural to talk about the mass of hair. If you say “le cheveu”, that means one piece of hair.
