" S'il te plaît, une pomme !"
in English, "a" becomes "an" in front of a vowel. In French, all nouns have genders so you have to respect genders: "pomme" is feminine, so "une pomme"; "livre" is masculine, so "un livre".
There are some patterns that are usually true... such as nouns that end in "e" are usually (but not always) feminine. But mostly you just have to learn each one.
Si (if) il (it) te (you) plait (please) > If it pleases you. Could anyone explain the grammar of the "te" comming before the "plait"?
S' = si = if
IL = impersonal subject of verb "plaît" = it
TE = indirect object of verb "plaît" to be placed before the verb = (to) you
PLAÎT = verb "plaire", construction with preposition "à": "plaire à" - conjugation agreeing with subject in 3rd person singular = please (construction with direct object, no preposition needed)
I put "s'il tu plaît une pomme" what did i do wrong? was it the lack of capitalization or punctuation?
"tu" is used only as a subject. In this sentence, "you" it is an object (direct or indirect), you have to use "te", for the subject of the verb is "il".
