l'ouïe

The word of the day is l'ouïe, which is feminine and means the sense of hearing.
  • Son ouïe, très fine ainsi que la conservent certains vieillards, lui laissa percevoir un bruit particulier, une sorte de grincement aigu.
His sense of hearing, very refined in the manner which certain old people maintain, let him perceive a particular noise, a sort of sharp squeak.
