Military / Defense
French term or phrase: Rusticité
Bonjour,
En français, les militaires empruntent le terme de rusticité pour se l'appliquer à eux-mêmes avec le même sens qu'il a pour les plantes et les animaux : c'est l'aptitude à supporter des conditions de vie difficiles (pour eux, lors de l'entraînement ou en opération). C'est donc une qualité. Mais peut-on parler de "hardiness" pour un militaire en anglais ou faut-il recourir à une périphrase?
Merci.
