Re: Comme même?

AFAIK, it means what Wooly says and also what Norman says in the context of the meal!

Gemonimo uses it quite a lot and I picked it up from her.  Usually, when I use it, I mean, all the same, nonetheless, even so, despite all that, etc.  Really to emphasise an opinion about something.....no, I don't mean emphasis in a narrow sense but in a sense of agreeing with what you have just said.

Perhaps Gem will come on and tell me whether I've got her meaning right....Smile [:)]Wink [;-)]

Re: Comme même?

In this part of the Bresse it seems to be used almost as a form of punctuation like 'y'know' or 'like'.

Well none of the examples in your dictionary link showed quand même being used for "similar".

I do hope you dont let your dictionary speak for you too often with phrases like:

Et je l'ai eu quand même!
Well, I throwed him

Re: Comme même?

Ah my dear Chancer, I see my shorthand has throwed you;  "or similar" is used not as a meaning but to indicate that the meaning is similar to the one I indicated, in other words "or a similar meaning to this".

Ah quand même !  You've finally managed to explain that to him.   Big Smile [:D]
