    The corridors were abuzz with tales of Tom and Carol and what they got up to in the sick bay.

    The company was abuzz with rumors about the new owner.

    The second example comes from abuzz definition | Dictionary.com. The first is the product of my own fevered imagination.

    The word 'abuzz' is not common, and means "buzzing" but with an implication of human activity; a bee-hive can be buzzing, but I wouldn't expect it to be called abuzz.

    Thank you. It's hard to find the translation in French...
