"Chialer" - Definition, pronunciation in French

📖 Definition of the word "blubber"

We use the word "cry" like the word "cry". They mean the same thing. We will say "I cry, you cry, he cries, we cry, you cry, they cry". It is usually used to make fun of someone who complains a lot. This word does not have the same meaning as "cry", it is more pejorative. It is used when you are annoyed, irritated or want to be sarcastic with someone.
