comment Why the pronounciation of “Monsieur?”
@LeVieuxGildas: I said that Monsieur was pronounced MORE LIKE [emphasis added] "Miss-sieur" (to my ear). That does not rule out your more correct transliteration, "Meussieu."

comment Why “de + infinitive” instead of “à + -ant" in “finissez de mourir”?
Gilles: Thank you for the correction, and your answer below. As for the headline, in my version, it was all "capitals." But this is a French translation of a novel talking about a "sensational" headline in either English or French.

comment Use of “Vie sociale”
I would translate "Il n'a pas de vie" (idiomatically) as, "He needs to get a life." But the translation "does the job."
