What does c'est tipar ! mean?


"C'est tipar" is a slang French phrase which literally means "It left" but is generally translated as "Let's go" or "Here we go".

It comes from "C'est parti" (which has the same meaning) but with the syllables of the word "par-ti" being reversed as "ti-par" by a mechanism called "verlan", very used in slang contexts.

(The word "ver-lan" being itself a "verlan" of the word "à l'envers" which means "Reversed"...)
