Re: A question for YCCMB

Not even! Round here, it's 'bon, allez!' At least 4 times before actually departing lol. But then, we're not 'elegant' ;-)

Re: A question for YCCMB

Using google for subjunctive in english:

I insist that he is here (indicative, a forceful assertion of the fact that he is here)
I insist that he be here (subjunctive, a demand that the condition of his being here be fulfilled)

So in your example its the former of these two - Yes?

Interesting that Norm goes French to English - have you noticed a difference?

Not sure if there is a problem with my computer.

Re: A question for YCCMB

I'm  a bit late on this.
I thought Noisette was asking what form of the verb pleuvoir to us - pleut or pleuve?
I know nowt about the subjunctive either. They must have invented it after I left school.

Re: A question for YCCMB

Yep, Pat, that is exactly what she was asking.

Nutty is improving her already good french - as it should be. I've an impossible task at my age.

Nutty is as far as my french goes in translation.

Re: A question for YCCMB

Nuts to you, sweetie :-) As for that codswallop about age, I'll be 105 this year and I've still got all my own teeth. They're in a box in a cupboard somewhere ;-) Thank you for the example, though! Very concise.
Don't worry about it, Pat. I doubt it will crop up much in NE England :-) Hope all is going well for you both!

Re: A question for YCCMB

?

How bizarre!

Sweet 17 is mint!!

I've got my own teeth too. Though one of my colleagues (chief technician at the time) was rather pi@@ed off when she found a false tooth in my desk draw when I asked her to find something in the office. That was when I was 40 and I gave up using the dentures then.Still have a gap there!!

In terms of French then fine - why not call yourself hazelnut on an english forum.

Is my example not correct? I actually am trying to learn and have not had the advantage of being into France from an early age.

Contrary to your belief I actually admire people who immerse themselves into another country (if that is what you have done). I was trying to be complimentary to you.

NB *** the sexism!!!
