comment When are “les”, “des”, etc used or not used?
@CJDennis To take your specific example, none of the following make sense to me "I am liking strawberries" / "I am liking some strawberries" / "I am liking the strawberries".

comment How to say “no connection” or “connection is offline” in French?
@PaulPicard That makes sense. I ended up doing some more Google searches for débranché and it did indeed seem mostly to be used in that figurative way. I also found the literal expression câble débranché.

No, it doesn't depend on the verb. When you say "I like strawberries" in English it suggests that you like all of them, but unless we're philosophical pedants we understand that you don't actually mean that. In French you need to be a little more precise. youtube.com/watch?v=-JPfVGotIQI
