Is saying "ceci est" instead of "c'est" the same as adding "-ci" to the ends of words to emphasize "this HERE"?
according to those, it says ceci/cela should be used for all verbs except etre, pouvoir +etre and devoir+etre where it should be contracted so i assume it must be, unless it's wrong :-/
p.s. i severely doubt it's wrong seeing as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Treachery_of_Images :) anybody care to wade in? is it such that when ce is used with etre or any of those other combinations it means something closer to it/he/she whereas ceci clarifies it back to "this"?
I wrote "This here is extremely important." and it was marked as wrong. What a silly system.
Did anyone else have a REALLY difficult time understanding "Ceci est" It sounded phonetically like SO CI E....
Yeah computers often have trouble with hiatus(es?) Normally it should be /sœsi è tèxtr.../ with a linking t between est and extrêmement
The audio says one "MO" in "extrêmement". While google audio says "MOMO"; twice, not one time. Which one is more correct ?
@Ali88082 Like you and all the other "past" learners from years ago now, in this thread, I too have difficulty with the audio quality but, extremement definitely has a total of four syllables when pronounced correctly. Bien sûr.
