English term or phrase: Rock formation tunnel
What is the difference between boulder, rock and stone? between pierre, roche and rocher?
I'm translating a list of words and I'm noticing that I'm using roche and pierre. In all cases, the english is rock.
Rock fence and trees
Mur en pierre et arbres
Rock flaking action
Écaillement de roches
rock form
Forme de roche
Rock formation tunnel
Tunnel de formation de roche
Rock Formations
Formation de roche

Does anyone know how to say rock formation tunnel in French?
Deb Phillips
rock formation = formation rocheuse
Explanation:
pour résumer c'est un problème de taille
boulder représente une pierre de taille importante
rock = roche aurait une consonnance très géologique, professionnelle et se traduira souvent par l'adjectif rocheux
quant à pierre il évoque la matière dans la langue moins savante ou un objet plus petit= fragment de roche
réponse bien imparfaite mais qui devrait vous aider
bonne chance
