Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

putain de (plural putains de)

  1. (slang, vulgar) fucking (as an intensifier)
    J'ai passé un putain de bon moment.
    I had a fucking great time.

Usage notes[edit]

This is not a noun phrase, but an adjective phrase; indeed, the gender of the article depends on that of the second noun: un putain de restaurant, not **une putain de restaurant. Compare drôle de for a similar behaviour, as well as espèce de.
