Accents in the French language
Hi Everyone, I have a question: "This is presented = Ceci est présenté" If I write "Ceci est presente" can it be considered a forgetfulness or is it actually a mistake?
I thank you for any reply :)
2020-04-03 It is helpful to think of letters with diacritics (accents, cedilles, and the like) as completely different letters, not just the same letters with marks. With that in mind, "presente" is just as much a misspelling as "ackshually". ;)
Timor mortis conturbat me.
If you find it frustrating to type in codes for the accents, you may want to try the international keyboard option in Windows: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/306560/how-to-use-the-united-states-international-keyboard-layout-in-windows
Once you get used to it, you can type pretty fast, and the consistency can help you remember which words need accents. :)
