utilization of de ( de la) vs du
Hello there, I am trying to find some rule as to when to use du vs de ( de la). Any help will be greatly appreciated....I am new to this system but quite like it:) N
First, du is really a contraction of de and le, so the question is really de vs. du, de la, des (de+les).
Second, check out this answer from french.about.com (who have great French grammar resources on a lot of subjects): http://french.about.com/od/grammar/a/de-vs-du-de-la-des.htm
