why is 'ce' and not 'ces' is used for the word 'these'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ppff

You will never see "ces sont". "Ce sont" is the plural of "c'est" and both are very fixed locutions. By the way French people usually say "c'est" instead of "ce sont" which is allowed when speaking (but sounds a bit familiar).

Ah! I see c'est is like Ce-est and Ce sont is plural! I see!

i dont fully understand c'est and ce. when you want to say "she is my wife" shouldn't it be "elle est mon femme"? no "c'est mon femme" because c'est means it? doesnt c'est mom femme mean "it is my wife"

elle est means she is, while ces't mon means this is my..

You know a lot of language, why limit yourself to profanity?

Ce sont= these are or they are? Are both acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/thelavaire

I said "those are my clothes" and it was marked correct. Is there a different word for these and those?
