au fait

while i was listening to my song recordings, i came across an unfamiliar word.
when everything else is au fait, without a doubt you're on my side. that's how the lyrics went.

au fait? what is that? here's what i found out.

au fait meaning conversant, informed or familiar with is a french word used in british english. this word has been absorbed by english speakers just like other french words which are more common like a la carte, bon appetit and deja vu.

now, whenever i hear someone use this word, i am more au fait.
