brouette -> wheelbarrow

Une brouette est un petit tombereau « à bras » (à énergie humaine). C’est l’outil ergonomique pour le transport de matériaux ou d’outils sur des terrains qui peuvent être accidentés mais nécessairement peu inclinés. Incontournable sur les chantiers, dans les fermes, ou dans les jardins, elle facilite le déplacement de charges qui peuvent être lourdes ou simplement encombrantes. Le principe du levier associé à la position du centre de gravité vers l’aplomb du point d’appui (la roue), lui confère une réelle efficacité.

A wheelbarrow is a small hand-propelled vehicle, usually with just one wheel, designed to be pushed and guided by a single person using two handles to the rear or a sail may be used to guide the ancient wheelbarrow by wind. The term "wheelbarrow" is made of two words: "wheel" and "barrow." "Barrow" is a derivation of the Old English "bearwe" which was a device used for carrying loads. Because the word "barrow" is not in common use in English today, many people incorrectly substitute the word "barrel" in place of "barrow" as this seems to make more sense (possibly because the cavity in a wheelbarrow resembles a half-barrel) even though it is not a correct etymology.
