There seems to be two French words for opinion "avis" and "opinion" What is the difference in meaning between the two in French?
I was wondering the same thing!! So I asked Google, and he gave me this: http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=392563
I hope this is correct ;P and helpful
I am relatively certain the liaison between "as" and "une" is dead wrong here, that you should not hear any such thing.
Why here does 'opinion' havve the feminine, but in another sentence of THE SAME EXERCISE is it masculine? (C'est TON opinion)?
French uses the masculine adjective (ton, or son, or mon) in front of feminine nouns which begin with a vowel sound. So, "opinion" is indeed feminine, but takes "ton" because it begins with "o".
But how can we distinguish either it's masculine or feminine when it is " l'opinion" ?
You can't. Unless there is an adjective around the noun that changes based on whether the noun is masculine or feminine.
We must learn the gender associated with each noun rather than just learn the noun and the gender separately.
Wouldn't this only translate to the rhetorical/mocking, "You have an opinion?" I thought, "Do you have an opinion would be, "As-tu une opinion?"
Questions are more often formed with normal word order in French than in English. And I guess the question would mostly be: "Est-ce que tu as une opinon?" But native French speakers may know better there.
If you want to pick from the hint list, choose the word at the top. FR "l'opinion" may be translated as "thoughts", but not "thought". The hint was incorrect.
The womans voice pronounces the s in as. Here and in many other places. The mans voice does not. Why is that?
Some liaisons are mandatory, some are forbidden, and a great many are optional. Of the latter, some are frequently heard in conversation, and some are very rarely heard.
Liaison after a verb (other than forms of être) is optional and rarely heard.
why am I incorrect. Tu as une opinion? you have a opinion? computer said no incorrect correct answer is: you have a view.
What is wrong with, "You have a thought?", or "You have one opinion?", or "You have an opinion?" or "You have one thought?"? And, where is the plural, "opinions" or "thoughts" implied in that sentence?
