This one was confusing, I could not figure out what "Julien" meant, until I realized that it was someone's name! The appearance of real names on Duolingo has thrown me off balance, I am used to bears, fish, elephants and Germans!
Be prepared to meet a few other names too! :)
Don't forget the canards and cochons :)
If belle-fille is daughter-in-law/step daughter, why not beau-fils for son-in-law? Is gendre also used for step son?
Julien is spelt with capital letter names are spelt with capital letters in English and French I think....
It is indeed, are you seeing it written with a lowercase j somewhere?
nooo.... only because Daniel was confused with the word "Julien"
Oh, I see! Yes, names are capitalised in French as well as in English.
I have just learnt that gendre =kid how do I differentiate kid/ son in law
kid in French = gamin (e) I learnt
"kid" is "gamin(e)". "gendre" and "beau-fils" are "son-in-law".
Third in the sense of being the third husband of ones daughter, or third in the sense of being the husband of ones third daughter?
I interpreted it as simply one's third son-in-law - if one has three daughters and each marries...
