  • From YOUKIHUG:
    "Héler un taxi" exists also in French, and how could you imagine the verb to hail comes from..?

  • Hi Stéphanie,


    I would suggest 'saluer' as a translation, though 'to hail' sometimes has formal (or ancient) connotations... soldiers often 'hail' each other. In modern English, we often 'hail a cab or taxi' to signal that we want a ride.


    hope this helps...
