comment Does “ouest” take a different preposition than the other directions?
en is always used before a vowel? Because it sounds better? Although this doesn't really work for de bas en haut

comment Souler: other meanings than “to get drunk”?
We'll respectfully disagree then. If I want to say someone is boring, I would use some other slang, like tu es chiant (although not exactly a good fit as too close to souler in that case) or expressions involving rasoir or mortel (like ennui mortel). One concept behind souler is the overdose of activity/chatter, which seems counter to the idea of boredom. The other concept as shown in the latter example is the one of ennui, but, to me at least, not in the sense of boredom, but in the sense of fatigue/obstacle/hazard.

comment Souler: other meanings than “to get drunk”?
I don't think "boring me to death" corresponds to "tu me soules". What you said before was correct, "you're pissing me off" or "you're getting me upset/on my nerves" fits better.

comment Comment se nomment les mots de type Xo-Y ?
Ne pas oublier les cas comme sino-indien ou américano-canadien qui semblent indiquer que l'on ne fait pas qu'ajouter -o au nom mais qu'il peut être transformé selon certaines circonstances…

comment « Un fichier de données » — Pourquoi « données » ?
And it's a literal translation in English. Les données d'un problème are what is given to solve the problem and its unknowns.
