"He is strong."
Translation:Il est fort.
"il est" is replaced by "c'est" only when followed by article + noun
- he is strong = il est fort
- he is a strong man = c'est un homme fort
I looked at the clues when u click on the word and it said cest fort?!??!?!! So annoying
What's the problem with my answer: "il est forte". The Duolingo's app gave me three options: fort/forte/rebuste.
"il" is masculine and "forte" is the feminine form of the adjective.
"il est fort" or "elle est forte"
Is "puissant" just a French-Canadian thing, or does it have a similar, but not quite synonymous meaning in Parisian?
Sometimes "l'homme fort" can be figuratively used to refer to a powerful man at the head of a state. Secondarily, "un homme fort" is also used as a polite description of a fat man (same for "une femme forte").
Un homme puissant is a powerful man, in all senses of the word (muscular, influential...)
By the way, seen from France, "Parisian French" sounds very weird to refer to "le français de France".
