    To be blasÚ.

    Hello!
    I'd like to ask if 'to be blasÚ' has a positive meaning or negative.

    - We were all incredibly excited and nervous about appearing on TV but Chris, who had been on television before, was quite blasÚ about it.

    Thanks.

    Re: To be blasÚ.

    BlasÚ is not an English word. It's French.

    n.a.t.
    PS: However, my dictionary tells me that it has the same meaning as in French: he was bored, unconcerned.
    Apparently one of the emotions the English don't have a better word than a French one to use for.

    This word just has French origin, but you can find it in English dictionary.

    As far as I know the English language doesn't have accents as in blasÚ.
    Usually when they import words they x-out all the umlauts and accents :)

    Yes I know, I found it in an English dictionary, too.

    It's neither positive nor negative. Context would determine which.
