"Parler" as a verb and "conversation" or "discussion" as nouns are just three (3) French equivalents of the English word "talk."

Specifically, the word "parler" is in the infinitive form of the verb. It therefore translates as "to talk." The feminine nouns "conversation" and "discussion" are among a number of choices that can be made for finding the French equivalents of "talk" as a noun. They each take "la" ("the") as the feminine singular definite article and "une" ("a, one") as the feminine singular indefinite article.

The respective pronunciations are "pahr-leh," "koh-vehr-sah-tyoh" and "dee-skyoo-syoh."
