Bonjour Sue,
from the Collins-Robert dictionary:
2 (as opposed to cheques, bonds, shares) espèces fpl
in cash, en liquide
⇒ £2000 in cash, deux mille livres en liquide
and another
masculine noun
(= corps) liquid
(= argent) cash
⇒ Ils n'acceptent que du liquide. They only take cash.
en liquide in cash, in ready money
payer qch en liquide to pay cash for sth
Bonne chance dans vos études en français.
Ron

hi Ron thank you
.I asked the question in response to one of the writing challenges, when I used the word to mean cash ( thinking that the translation implied money in the form of coins and notes rather than cheques or credit card), But the answers given did not propose liquide as a translation. so I guess now I need to ask how best to ask a friend do you have any cash to pay for the coffee? and what would be the wording of the question using liquide. Many thanks.
