I'm reading an old comic play from 1715 and I'm struggling to interpret a word:
Leandre suit comme un lâche, Scaramouche est un gavache; Et moi itou.
I think it might be:
Leandre follows like a coward, Scaramouche is a foreigner [derogatory?] And I am also.
This does not entirely make sense in this context (or any context). If there are any slang shades of meaning that might improve my understanding, it would be much appreciated.
Disclaimer: So sorry if this word is offensive or a swear. I am unaware. [I don't believe it is, but if so, my apologies.]
