… because the French girl … (5)


I believe the answer is:


'girl' is the definition.

'because the french' is the wordplay.
'because' becomes 'car' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'the french' becomes 'la' ('the' in French).

(Another definition for carla that I've seen is " Name of woman".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
