PRONOUNS “Y” AND “EN” BY BROOKE HOLMES
PRONOUN "EN" EN
PRONOUN “EN” • “En” replaces phrases beginning with “De”.
PRONOUN “EN” • An example in English would be:- I have a lot of clothes. In everyday English we would not say this, we would convert it into: I have a lot of them.
PRONOUN “EN” • This too happens in French:- Instead of saying: J’ai beaucoup de vêtements. We would say: J’en ai beaucoup. “En” translates to them and slips in between “J” and “Ai”
PRONOUN “EN” • Other examples in French include:- Elle a trop de livres. This can then be changed into: Elle en a trop.
PRONOUN <<EN>> • Elle a dixchats. Changing the 10 cats into a pronoun would make it, She had 10 of them: Elleena dix.
PRONOUN “Y” • “Y” replaces a place. • In English we replace the place with THERE.
PRONOUN “Y” • An example where this is used in English would be: I am going to the Bank. Rather than saying this, in everyday English we would say: I am going there.
PRONOUN “Y” • In French they change it like this: Je vais à la banque. – meaning I am going to the bank. This would then be replaced with there (y), to change it into I am going there. J’y vais.
PRONOUN “Y” • A second example of using the pronoun “Y” is:- Je vais àNew York. New York then being replaced by the correct pronoun, Y, makes it again: J’y vais.
PRONOUN “Y” • Another example of using the pronoun “Y” is:- On est dans le salon. This then being replaced with the pronoun “Y” turns it into – On yest.
PRONOUNS “Y” AND “EN” • To summarise, you use the pronoun “En” to replace phrases introduced by “De”. In English it is translated into “Of it”, “Of them”, “From it”, “From them”, “Some”, or “Any”. • And you use the pronoun “Y” to replace places. In English, this is translated into “There”.
