Hi DarkSidE,

If it's a bad word, you will not have the answer on this forum.

:roll: My maghrebian-french friends, as I was a child, often said something like "zahmah" or "zarmah" which could be the "zamel" you mention, for it is quite hard to transcript the dialectal arabic word used by them, that I only heard.

Be that as it may, this "zarmah" is an explanation without signification "well now !", used for suprise, astonishment, anger, etc.

coucou,

the French word "zamel" comes from Maroc and in French it means "a homosexual,a gay"

other French equivalents: zamel= pédé (PD), tapette etc...
