Bretter (breh-tay): Bretter means to dawdle, to take more time than necessary for a task. Bretter comes from “bretteur,” a type of swordsman who wields a “brette,” which translates
to swashbuckler. It is possible that the verb originated from the type of activities that were common to an original “bretteur.”
