Could this also be translated as "You can add commentary?" Or does "un" make it unambiguously "comment?"
Can it mean "You can add a critique (= set of comments/reactions)," or does it have to mean "You can add one comment" ?
I would also like an answer to this. It seemed the best translation to me.
so, people have been waiting for over a year to get an answer from a native French speaker whether "you can add commentary" is correct, as I think it is.
you can add a commentary? Like if you were to ask someone to provide a commentary for your film.
And it gives this to me the day after they add comments to duolingo android. Interesting.
still waitting on ios :( I miss the discussions when i'm taking lessons on the ipad
can pouvoir be used as both can and may, or is there another french verb that translates into may.
I think that both can and may must be translated into pouvoir. There is no other verb in French.
so they don't have supercilious teachers torturing students with "yes you can, but you may not"
Oh, now you're torturing myself with your sentence, I'm trying to guess the overall meaning and I'm going around something like "You are able, but you shouldn't" ? or "you better don't try" ? Le you may not seems very difficult to translate in French in that case. At least, for me :-)
"You can add a review"? I am fairly certain I've seen "commentaire" used like that, but maybe it was idiomatic to the sentence.
my comment is that "could" should also be right here, as it is used to show politeness in English, not just the conditional (or past) tense.
Would pouvez-vous be used in the question form of this sentence (i.e. Can you add a comment)?
Parce que could traduit soit un passé (imparfait ou PC) soit un conditionnel, et que là le verbe est au présent.
can someone give an opinion on if this phrase can be translated " You can add a remark? Merci
remark is not so far from comment, but everytime it's possible, DL preferes the closest word.
Commentaire features in Linguee with singular and plural meaning comment, comments, notes, commentary, observation, observations and others. There are also examples where "des commentaires" appears with plural meaning, as you might expect.
