* In the Madelinot vocabulary, an éloise is a flash of lightning punctuated by a clap of thunder.  An éloise is the electrical strike usually followed by thunder.  Figuratively, an éloise can signify a quick gesture, a quick move or speed of execution (excerpt from Dictionnaire des régionalismes du français parlé des Îles de la Madeleine by Chantal Naud).
