Title: Mardi Gras and everything else


1
Mardi Gras and everything else
  • As in the grammar stuff

2
First, lets continue how to ask a question
  • Four ways
  • Intonation
  • nest-ce pas?
  • Est-ce que (qu)
  • INVERSION flipping verb and subject and joining
    them with a hypen (Verb Subject Rest of
    Sentence ). BUT
  • You cannot invert proper nouns you must keep the
    name but replace him/her with il/elle in the
    construction.
  • When the verb ends in a vowel and the subject
    begins with a vowel, a liaison consonant (t) must
    be used.
  • Je is typically not inverted. An exception, of
    course, is puis-je.

3
Make the following phrase a question
  • Tu as faim
  • Elle danse bien
  • Georges ne chante pas bien

4
Oh No! What to do about a negative
  • Intonation wrap ne pas around the verb (George
    ne chante pas bien?)
  • nest-ce pas Cant do it. Its not a cardinal
    sin, but it doesnt make much sense.
  • Est-ce que wrap ne pas around the verb
    (Est-ce que George ne chante pas bien?)
  • Inversion wrap ne pas around THE INVERTED
    STRUCTURE (George ne chante-t-il pas bien?)
  • When answering a negative question with Yes, the
    answer is Si, not oui.

Mardi Gras
  • Mardi Gras literally means Fat Tuesday. It is
    the day before Ash Wednesday, which marks 40 days
    (not including Sundays) before Easter. This date
    changes every year, because Easter is always the
    first Sunday after the first full moon happening
    on or after the Spring Equinox. This makes
    Easter a moveable feast.
  • New Orleans is a place of French influence
    because the Acadiens were expulsed by the British
    from Canada to Louisiana. There, their name was
    changed from Acadiens to Cajuns.
