What is the meaning of the French word “interdit” in the context of the expression “comme un interdit”, which is the title of a song by French singer Christophe?

1 Answer 1


"Interdit" is mostly used as an adjective; but as a noun it means "taboo" and so, a possible translation is "taboo"; however, other options such as "line not to cross" can be meaningful. In the particular context of this song, nevertheless, "forbidden fruit" would be a better translation.
