  5. "Le colonel a de l'autorité."

"Le colonel a de l'autorité."

Translation:The colonel has authority.

December 22, 2012



The answer "The colonel has the authority" should be accepted as well. For example, if I were a lower ranking officer making demands, I might be rebuked with "The colonel has the authority here, etc etc".


No, because having "some authority" (de l'autorité) is not like having "the authority" (l'autorité).
