Hello, I know that hot flashes mean "boufe chalè" in creole. What I want to know is how to translate "to have hot flashes". I have the possible verbal expressions: Fè boufe chalè, gen boufe chalè, or pran boufe chalè. Which of these is correct or are all three can be used to express that meaning or is there another expression? Also, is there another way of say hot flashes and are there verbal expressions that accompany them?
It’s gen boufe chalè
You might also hear: chalè granmoun nan (only used between
friends, sometimes jokingly) - You should not use this expression with someone you barely know: Chalè granmoun nan
