: Hello
: I have an expression "tout court" it sounds French but I did not find its meaning, I checked in the cobuild Concordance and it is used in English.
: The context:
: The use of the term may indeed be inherited form earlier formulation of the pericope in which the "sons of God" may have been divine beings *tout court*, but it is not improbable that the author of this text in its final form should have understood it in reference to rulers..."
: and of course my deepest thanks and appreciation.

It is French.

tout court - (too COOR) without further explanation or description. (From "Le Mot Juste: A Dictionary of Classical and Foreign Words and Phrases," Vintage Books, New York, December 1991.)
