Latest news from Nancy

Today the EMLex students of the Université de Lorraine visited Nancy’s Museum-Aquarium. It started with a guided tour of the aquarium proper (Karina’s idea!), then the students discovered its attached natural history museum, which led them to a temporary exhibition about hair, and finally to a much appreciated section about French CHEVEU m.n. ‘hair on top of the head of humans’ and POIL m.n. ‘all other kinds of hair’, idioms based on these lexemes, and their etymology. Who said this was an extracurricular activity?
