press

The French word for 'press' is 'presse'. It is used much like its English counterpart, both for the act of applying pressure to something and referring to the media industry. However, context plays a significant role in determining its specific use. For instance, in sentences alluding to the media or journalism, it refers to the press as an establishment.
