My New Favorite French Word:
Fatweyer (verb; "to issue a fatwa")
Context? Hassan Hamdani's latest Humeur column in Tel Quel ("A fatwa set in concrete"), about Egyptian televangelist Youssef Al Qaradawi's latest proclamation that it's OK for Muslims to go into interest-bearing debt in order to procure housing.
"Mais Youssef Al Qaradawi a été rappelé à l'ordre par l'Iftaa, réunion d'oulémas marocains, seule habilitée à fatweyer de Tanger à Lagouira."
"But Youssef Al Qaradawi has been called to order by Iftaa, the Moroccan Ulema Council, which has sole authority to [issue fatwas] between Tangier and Lagouira" (extreme northern and southern towns in Morocco).
(Of course, this is "World French" and thus completely free from would-be "gatekeepers" like l'Academie Francaise...)
