Serbo-Croat term or phrase: pisoar
Ugostiteljski objekat mora imati toaletnu grupu za goste koja se sastoji od odvojenih toaleta za žene i muškarce. Toalet ima najmanje jednu WC kabinu s pretprostorom, a muški toalet i najmanje jedan pisoar.

To bi trebalo da je u korenu francuska reč. Našao sam na internetu da se koristi u originalnoj varijanti "pisoar"?
