Nouns. From French.
“A walk taken without a location or goal in mind”
“Someone who will use any means possible to get what they desire”
I guess that the first one may related to an ‘amble’ although I’ve always thought that to be a style of walking, rather than the walk itself.
The second word has a darker meaning. Ideas of backstabbing are entailed within it, and the Italians also use a similar word, arrivista, to mean the same thing. The Spanish, however, use arrivista to mean ‘someone who considers themselves to be of a higher social class.’
And who said knowing one Romance language meant that you knew them all…
