comment Comment traduire « it sounds like X » ?
By the way, is "...de traduire ça?" okay to say? As opposed to "...de le traduire?" I'm trying to distinguish between "...to translate it?" and "...to translate that/this?"

comment Est-ce que les francophones natifs sont familiers avec toutes les conjugaisons du passé simple?
I almost titled this "Les francophones natifs sont-ils familiers...." Would that have been right also?

I don't understand this bit about traire....I looked and can't find any passe simple conjugation for it, let alone three different ones. What's going on here??

comment In what sense is the second set of “asseoir” conjugations more polite?
I think préciser is best translated by clarify.... precise n'est pas un verbe en anglais. Mais en réponse (ça se dit?), je me demande la manière de cette politesse susdite.

Wow, this is so informative....I've been learning Spanish lately and entender is to understand and it's interesting and unsurprising to see that entendre once meant the same thing in French. It's fascinating to see how language diverges over time.

comment Kindly requesting a guide to the verb “Asseoir”
Also, could someone elaborate on what Yves means by the second set of conjugations being occasionally considered "more polite"? I might make a new question for this.

I have to downvote this because once you read the top two answers it becomes clear that by comparison this is neither useful nor accurate, sorry.
