Discuss and learn French: French vocabulary, French grammar, French culture etc.
I think it would be "un verre a eau".
Thank you, George. I was thinking the "à eau" was a little non-euphonic for the language, as "Où va il" would be.
I had the same thought but was quite confident as it sounded right.
Doing a search seems to show the expression is in good use
my thought is that there's a wine glass cuz it's part of the culture and the glass is specifically designed to facilitate the best experience of drinking wine. i would doubt there's a term for a glass expressly for water. just guessing.
People can lead very ordered lives.They would definitely have a glass for water (especially when laying the table)
