Sorry I don't have much context, all I have is this definition from Wiktionary:

gawker: Someone who gawks, someone who stares stupidly

How to translate this word to French?

(There might be several words if gawker has several meanings.)

  • Does a gawker always stare studidly at atuff, or is it just a one moment?

Il peut signifier un voyeurs ou un curieux. On pourrait utiliser le terme de badaud lorsqu'il désigne un observateur dans la rue.


En langage familier cela peut aussi signifier godiche ou grand dadais et s'il s'agit d'un verbe : rester bouche bée.

  • la ca n'a rien a voir.. godiche means an awkward/stupid person, grand dadais a tall klutz, and rester bouche bee to be speechless. No notion of gawker in any of this.
