Can someone explain me what " S' " means?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/alphabeta

It literally translates to "if it pleases you". The "s'il" is a contraction of "si il" ("if it").


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/remigio.chilaule

Alphabeta wasn't "il" the translation of "he" in "he/she/it"? Im confused


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/epyion

'il' is also used for 'it'. So yes it means he, but it can also be it


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mega9Yo

So the entire thing, literally translates into 'If it pleases you.'.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jayway223

So then can it also mean (because "il" means he/it) "If it pleases you" and "If he pleases you"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

jayway- s'il te plaît is only please. Your sentences are ok but in another context. If he pleases you, ask him to go out with you / s'il te plaît, demande-lui de sortir avec toi, but it doesn't mean please like in the duo sentence. It means if that guy pleases you go out with him. for it : buy this ring if it pleases you / achète cette bague si elle te plaît.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

remigio- in s'il vous plaît, it's neutral. Please, has no gender.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yunqi4

"Il" both means "he" and "it". Singular masculine or neutral like "Il neige/Il fait chaud" (it is snowing/it's warm)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nathan173901

Actually there's no neutral gender in French and most Romance languages.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Smuggins

Is the contraction mandatory? In English, it sounds formal to avoid the contractions, but it isn't required. Is French different? Will it just sound different or be considered incorrect?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fisher_Samantha

The way words are pronounced creates the contraction. Say" si il" normal speed then get faster and faster. Spanish does similar things like with "a el". If "a el" is pronounced quickly it's essentially "al" so instead of saying "a el" we just say "al" so I guess French isn't alone in the pointless contractions thing.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

fisher- contractions are used for a better pronounciation. with s'il,(si il) it's because the first word ends with i and the second starts with i.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lannaaax3

What about l'homme and l'orange? Why are they contracted instead of le homme and le orange


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sanndheepk

I observed that it happens with vowel sounds mostly


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Christina508584

I know for l'homme its because the h is silent and le homme would be awkward to say. I believe the rule is if the noun sounds like it starts with a vowel, then you used a contraction for le or la. However once you get to plurals, then its les regardless of gender or vowel sounds. I could be wrong, but thats what i remember.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

lannaaax3- when a word ends with a vowel and the following word starts with a vowel or a silent H, you use the apostrophe EX : the child/l'enfant (le enfant). the story/l'histoire (la histoire.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

fisher- I disagree on one point. It has nothing to do with the speed of the speaking, it's a grammar rule, same in French and Spanish


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

smuggins- when 2 vowels are following one another, use the contraction. I love you/je t'aime ( je te aime), it makes the pronounciation easier


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Summer175941

It depends on how you use it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JeanMcBomb

thank you for clearing this up. I had always assumed it meant "if you please" (I mean it works in place of it, but it doesn't literally mean the same thing)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/unicorngirl12390

All of mine was just please


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DavidGi

It comes from "si" ("if"), the "i" is elided. "Si il" and "Si ils" are not correct, the right form is "s'il" and "s'ils". ("S'il vous plaît !", "S'il mange alors...", ...). Just like you don't say (and write) "le arbre" but "l'arbre".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TempleRachel

S' is a contraction of "si", which means "if." So "s'il vous plait" literally translates to "if it pleases you" but you can just say it means just "please"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bree93799

So plait means please?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Suhana765957

It is used because of the vowels


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BEN9000

S'= si= if...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BaldwinII

Si, is a useful word. It can mean, if, so, and even yes. Depending on the sentence.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TimothyAhe2

S' is in place of si. It means if


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.I.Am.L.

s'il te plaît is only please. If he pleases you, ask him to go out with you / s'il te plaît, demande-lui de sortir avec toi, but it doesn't mean please like in the duo sentence. It means if that guy pleases you go out with him. for it : buy this ring if it pleases you / achète cette bague si elle te plait


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DamianCu93

Is there a difference on saying S'il vous plaît? or S'il te plaît?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/djami_duo

in french "vous" is used for plural and for showing respect for example when you talk to a person that you don't khow or old than you. however, if you talk to a friend you can say "tu" or "te" i mean the second person.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesRoden1

Not really, s'il vous plaît is the formal. So how you ask your parents. S'il te plaît is how you ask your friends.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sooz5002

I don't think you would use "vous" with your parents but rather with people you don't know very well or in more formal settings such as your boss at work


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

sooz- I always say vous to my parents and my uncles etc, it depends on how your parents thought you, for exemple, my children say tu to me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sooz5002

I stand corrected mitaine ;-) Thank you


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

jamesroden- it's also for vous 2nd person plural, if you ask many persons at the same time.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/edward2

I would like to know the same. Is it formal vs non formal or just you in plural vs. singular?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

edward- when you say s'il vous plaît, it can be for one or many persons. singular vous, is formal for one or many persons. s'il te plait is singular you, informal


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Metsa888

Do French speakers always say the entire phrase? Why not just 'plaît'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DavidGi

Always the entire phrase. Just "plaît" does not make sense in french. But in everyday life, with friends, family, ..., "s'il te plaît" can be said quickly, and sounds more like "s'te plaît"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BaldwinII

OK. I put, "If you please. It was marked wrong. That is the literal translation and should be correct. Shortened we translate as please.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/smatprabby

Exactement; d'accord.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/42Sean

Technically, the most literal translation is "If it pleases you"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bobo_al

What does the "i" with the carrot on top mean/sound like?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

bobo- aî in plaît is pronounced like the first E in Ever.. î, alone is like a normal i as in fini / finished. The sign on î is called un accent circonflexe.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FrenchByte

Isn't it a circumflex?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Baqir_

its called a circumflex in English and circonflexe in french


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ianina

So would it literaly translate to 'if it pleases you'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/smatprabby

Why not "If you please"?


[deactivated user]

    I wrote 'if you please' since there's a 'vous' in there... But no.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MaryLea11

    This could also be translated as 'if you please.'


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChristineT869025

    I agree..but i was wrong


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SaifulShafique

    Difference between "S'il vous plait" and "S'il te plait"??


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dannobear

    I believe that "S'il vous plait" is referring to plural, an elder, or someone higher than you. And from my understanding, "S'il te plait" is a bit more informal. (someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I am still learning


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanielUzod

    Oh. I think that should be correct


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KalSingh

    A littel tip if you press the French word it will tell you what it means :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RyanWareha

    I understand this colloquially means please, but marking this incorrect for using the formal translation (if you please) instead of just "please".


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stigg426

    is vous the French equivalent of the Spanish "te"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    stigg- no, te is informal, so vous sing, formal, is usted, for plural ustedes.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/exemerson

    What is the context of ''if you please'' in this phrase?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    exemerson, s'il vous plaît means only PLEASE.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/manorbrand

    In formal English it is not uncommon to use the phrase, "If you please" and since this is the formal French "Please", the English "If you please" should be an acceptable translation. Particularly since that is what the phrase translates to.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WonderThunder

    Can you ever use S'elle te plait? I thought il was masculine?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    wonder- s'il te plaît is a neutral expression meaning please accept, or please give me that. You can say si elle te plaît sors avec elle / if she pleases you go out with her. But it has nothing to do with the verb to please / plaire, as a demand such as please, give me that.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    Also I forgot to say : if you use SI ELLE in a sentence, no need to use the contraction because, the second word doesn't start with the same vowel as the last vowel of the first word.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/angelli_xo

    is s'il pronounced like 'sill'? my french teacher pronounces it like 'see'


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    angeli- si il, we have to put the contraction because 2 egual vowels are following one another. If means si, pronounced like sea or see. il alone is pronoounced like ILLness. s'il is like still without the T.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/icarius13

    écoutez bien, c'est un son que vous entendrez souvent de la part des mendiants en France. haha


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/prajakta982989

    A big phrase in french just means "please"? What's the meaning of "plait"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PatrickJaye

    @prajakta982989

    "Plait" in this case "please".

    The whole phrase means "If it pleases you" but in most cases we just translate this phrase as "please".


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/shaggy.pep

    S'il vous plait means please S'il te plait also means please Whats the difference between these two phrases having the same meaning?

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bAssKappa

    Why can't it be just plaît? Instead of the whole S'il vous plaît?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    basskappa- Because it's like that in French, just plaît would have no sense for us natives


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MsEells

    It wouldn't accept without me pronoincing the "s" in vous, even though the Duo people pronounce it as silent. Which is correct?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    maeels- you don't pronounce the S unless the S is followed by a vowel _ je vous (z) aime


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    You don't say it, at least in this context.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gideon994989

    "S'il vous plaît" is for your boss or someone you don't know very well (or at all) and "s'il te plaît" is for your friends and family.

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mustafa.A.A

    sil vous plait used for formal conversations and when talking to a group (Plural) sil te plait used for single non formal conversations

    it is the same difference between Tu and Vous

    OMG it was a typo!!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IasmynFeli1

    why does it is wrote as "s'ill vous plate" and sometimes as "s'ill at plate"?

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Darpana6

    Why is "if you please working” ?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/genius_geekR

    So the whole thing just meant IF IT PLEASES YOU?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/smatprabby

    Yes, that's what it means. But duolingo doesn't accept that as an answer.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/manorbrand

    I wrote "if you please" and was marked wrong even though that is literally what it says. Please fix this.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BEN9000

    It gets a little "confusing" when the very same frase could be right or wrong just because it is in a diferent exercise. I have used "If you please" many times before and got it right and just in this exercise i got it wrong, the same happens frecuently for other expresions. I wish there were more consistency.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/StephanieCronk

    Is there a difference of when to say "s'il te plait" or "s'il vous plait"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pam520742

    So, the answer 'I you please' for 'S'il vous plait' is as grammatically correct as 'Please' and, I would presume, politer to use if the status is unknown?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rock748368

    I think this is pretty right


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/illuveda

    I answer "If you pleas" and it was wrong how is it ??


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bill136144

    S'il vous plaît obviously means if you please or please for short, so if you please is not incorrect


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/42Sean

    Odd... I entered "Please". It didn't accept it, and said the correct answer is "Please!", with the exclamation mark...


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/meenu232432

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Uz0Z9x

    What us the difference between s'il vous plait and s'il te plait when they both translate to please?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yuri353531

    A period instead of an exclamation mark isn't a reason to mark an answer as incorrect.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lily554324

    Why are some Vous and somr tous


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lizzy139140

    What does it mean literally?

    Literal translation of "If you please" should also be an accepted answer.

    Why do u need to use.more than one.word.to SAY ONE WORD!!!!!!!!???!!????????!!!!!!?!??!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Marko772144

    Why do you need to use 4 words to say "pleased to meet you" when you really need only one: "enchanté" ???


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    Because it doesn't translate exactly to English, don't get mad over a language just because you deem it "too long" and so it doesn't fit your standards. It more roughly translates to "If you please/if it pleases you." We (English speakers) just translate it to the short phrase of "please".

    In English, you could say "How are you doing?" But in french you could just say "Ca va?", do you deem this too long as well?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheLivingFlame

    Why is "if it pleases you" and "if you please" wrong?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    thelivingfrench-- because in French it's nonsense, we don't talk like that in French.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JovanniRam7

    This one was new and confusing


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jaco24977

    I wrote "if it pleases you" to see what happens and i got marked wrong!! Yet that is literally what it says?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    jac0- there are some expressions in French that you can't translate litterally


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Laith.Ajlouni

    Doest it mean "If you please" ?!!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jackie331759

    What is the difference between s'il vous plait and s'il te plait


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BaldwinII

    S'il vous plait is used when addressing elders, or in a more formal context when you do not have a close relationship with the person or group. S'il te plait is used with family and close friends and is less formal. I hope this helps.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BillyDecha

    "If you please" was marked wrong. Please tell that to my high school french teacher.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    Just because duo says its wrong doesn't mean they're right. Im sure duo has made a mistake in their program once or twice and this isn't one of the accepted responses. Maybe you should report it and say "My answer should be accepted". But you're right, just duo doesn't accept it.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    static- when we learn, sometimes we can't translate word for word, accept that. Please is s'il te plaît informal or s'il vous plaît formal


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    Not sure what you're saying?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    static- I mean please is : s'il te plaît or s'il vous plaît. For me, in English, it was always Please. Some other learners ask why the translation of please is so long in French, it's normal because all different languages have their differences. When I say word for word, it's about if you please when the answer is so simple, PLEASE


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    No, I know what it is and what the translation is, I'm french. I'm just not sure where you're coming from? I was telling the person that they were right and that duo just needs to accept the answer, and all of a sudden you're telling me to "Just accept it."? That's where I'm confused.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    static- je veux dire que if you please est compliqué pour rien. Duo a traduit s'il vous/te plaît par Please ce qui est la bonne réponse et je ne comprends pas pourquoi Duo devrait accepter if you please.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    D'accord, désolé pour la confusion. Je pense qu'après si longtemps, ils auraient dû l'accepter maintenant.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    static- je vous donne 2 lingots pour le malentendu


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DyutiDas1

    When do we use s'il te plait and when do we use s'il tvous plait


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BaldwinII

    S'il te plait is very causal and used with family or close friends. S'il vous plait is more formal and used when addressing elders, casual acquaintances, people who are not real close to you.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Holden985902

    ... this makes no sence


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MarabellaL

    Everyone dislike my comment


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jake653677

    Is there a shorter, probably less formal way of saying thank you? Just out of curiosity


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    this means please, not thank you. Don't get it mixed up.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DebbieDunc4

    I had to google this. It was not taught??

    What does this sentence means


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/shiraji

    Why doesn't Duolingo explain more grammar? Just bruteforcing it based on translations doesn't work for me.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    shiraj- click on the tips before starting the exercise, it helps to understand


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AylinTJ

    All this sentence means please??


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AdamKing73032

    I just got please wrong because I didn't put an explanation mark on the end of the English translation!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    adam- no way, I never use it since years and always accepted, your mistake must be something else


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/B0TELL0

    It is rigth use "tu " instead of "vous"?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    botello- both are correct, with a friend better tu


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/praptee3

    How does this means please? You should explain first and then ask...it would be much better that way like how am i supposed to kbow?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_static_

    Well that's what it translates to, not all words are going to have direct translations so I don't really think it's a problem. If you're looking for explanations go to the tips section on each level, it gives you charts n stuff.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ShVi911632

    How do you know when to add the little hat (ô, î, etc)? I sort of have the accent grave and accent aigu down pronounciation-wise (sort of, but not really), but can't figure out what the hat does. Also, what is it called? Thanks! Loving this app!

    jaymz- the accent is called accent circonflexe. It is used mostly on a vowel before a T. reconnaître/recognize, bête/beast, bâton/stick. It also happens with other lettersd, look at this link. https://www.lawlessfrench.com/pronunciation/circumflex/

    Is S'il tu plaît correct? Can tu and vous be used in the same way?

    yep, but be careful when you use it.

    If you're talking to friends or family (Or at least my family is cool with "tu"), you would use "tu". It's for informal situations.

    If you're talking to your boss, workers at a store, a stranger, or anyone you're to be polite/show respect to, you would use "Vous" since its formal.

    Is s'il tu plaît correct? Can tu and vous be used interchangeably?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mitaine56

    Anas, depending on the context, if you ask something to your son you will say s'il te plaît, personnally I Would say s'il vous plaît to my mother or to a stranger or to o group of people like in : s'il vous plaît fermez vos téléphones/please close your phones. next time read the comments, the answer was just under your comment
