I am looking for the traduction of the french word "terre". Which means the planet earth, the ground and also the material the ground is made of. I don't know how to translate a specific meaning of it, this :
Online translaters give me :
- Earth : Google image only shows the planet earth
- Ground : I don't know if this can be used to mean the material
- Land : I think that doesn't mean the material either
- Dirt : I think it means the "material" that make a thing dirty
What is the right translation for this ?
Example of sentence translated with google:
Il y avait un tas de terre.
There was a pile of dirt.
Il mit de la terre autour de la plante.
He put the soil around the plant.
