Should the x in "veux" be pronounced here since it is followed by a vowel? Would it be pronounced voiced (z) or nonvoiced (s)?
The liaison is optional, but if you want to mark it, use the Z sound.
I knew that "livre" also means "pound" and tried that. What I didn't know is that the weight is feminine while the book is masculine. That will teach me to look at the options under the words.
If this was in English wouldn't "I would like a book" be an acceptable translation? Or am I mistaking that for "je voudrais"?? Thanks in advance for any clarification!
Yeah 'I would like' 'Je voudrais'is distinctly different from 'Je veux' I want.
"I would like a book" would be more polite anyway. You are not mistaking it for "je voudrais". It's just "I want a book".
General comment: I read somewhere on duolingo that if you want to see the conjugation of a verb, place your cursor on the verb and click the 'conjugate' button. I can't find it anywhere. Anyone know how to do this?
