comment Evolution du mot “aujourd'hui”
@LudoMC: Donc, l'explication est que "hui" était trés "faible"? J'avais lu cette chose, mais dans un forum, donc je n'était pas sûr. :)

comment How did “coucou” (with its original “cuckoo” meaning) become a greeting in French?
That might explain what @Joubarc said in his comment above. Are you saying what he wrote?

"Coucou" according to "Le Dictionnaire de l'Académie Française" is: "Oiseau du genre des pies, qui a tiré son nom de son chant." So, it doesn't come from the clocks, but from the bird, which takes its same name from its own verse.

comment Traduire « the other side of the coin »?
Idioms usually are 90% not possible to be translated literally... It can happen if the languages have similar roots or are close to each other.

Isn't "d'un autre côté" something like "on the other hand"?
