coudoyer

Today's French word is coudoyer.  It means to mix with, rub shoulders with, get to know (someone).  It can also mean to strike someone on the neck (from the word le cou, neck).
  • Il est né pauvre, mais comme adulte il coudoie souvent le luxe effréné des hautes classes.
He was born poor, but as an adult he often rubs shoulders with the unbridled luxury of the upper classes.
