Hi, I'm new :) Why can't this be C'est du riz?
That would be "It is rice"
Also, why can't this be s'il y a du riz?
"There is rice" doesn't have "some" in it though, so why is "du" in there?
Yep, wondering why we can't just say "il y a riz", too
Some is implied it English. French requires nouns to be accompanied by articles, such as: du, le, la.
Why is it 'du' instead of 'de'?
