faute de mieux[edit]

RFD French part. Perhaps just faute de + mieux, but I may be wrong. --Felonia 09:56, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

keep. I'm French, and it is obvious to me that it's as much a set phrase as the English one. It's not fully necessary to include it to understand it when you read it, but it's necessary to include it to know that this is the precise phrase you must use when you want to express this idea.

That's good to know. Thanks for the input. --Felonia 21:09, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

faute de mieux

Rfv-sense - noun definition (in an adverb section). SemperBlotto 16:41, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

I found a couple of noun usages (not this one though). I'm inclined to think of them as errors, but the shared sense, as much as there is one, is something like "the outcome of an action or decision accepted faute de mieux." — Pingkudimmi 05:18, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
