comment How to translate “drive”?
Pourquoi se servir de là-bas plutot que y? "J'y suis allé" n'est pas valide?

comment What are “cuir” and “velours” liaisons?
Well, are these common mispronunciations? I mean, why on earth would someone put a t in the middle of peux avoir? Why does the article bring this up at all?

comment La liaison est-elle obligatoire entre « en » et un gérondif ?
Haha I was going to try to answer this but you have reminded me I am very clearly not qualified, since I was basically just going to say "oui." In fact I don't even understand your answer....I thought the liaison had to do with whether the first word ended in a consonant and the second began with a vowel....this whole grammatical analysis greatly confuses me.

comment Differentiating uses of “also”?
LOL I edited your answers to lowercase the name of the school because I'm an idiot and I didn't realize you were answering the last part of my question, which was mostly a joke.

I have to say this is a really excellent first answer for someone brand new to SE! Nice use of formatting and nice answer. Welcome to the network!

Is there a liaison on "mais oui"? I assume not.

Aaaaaaaaaaand Gilles wins. Merci. I was surprised how many people are not familiar with this particular English expression, it's so very common! Goes to show how little I know. Lucky you're around.

comment French version of “famous last words”?
Yes, from the responses, it appears nobody is actually familiar with this expression, or does not properly understand its usage. My explanation was flimsy but I was not counting on people needing it. I just tweaked it to be a bit more accurate, for what it's worth.

You mean that there is no French saying with the same meaning?

comment French version of “famous last words”?
Je ne comprends pas ces mots: "Il est souvent question de..." In this context it doesn't seem to make sense. "It is often a question of...." ?

comment How to translate “He's not as young now as he was then”?
So, I remember that plus is pronounced without the s in a negative context like this-- but that's overridden by the need for a liaison here, right?

Argh I under-utilise ne...plus so badly. Need to start incorporating it into my French thoughts more.

comment How to translate “He's not as young now as he was then”?
dans le temps == "at the time" ? I thought it was ... I don't know, en ce temps or a/en ce moment. I also keep trying to use lors in here somewhere.

comment Pronunciation of plurals?
Sounds correct to an American ear. Close enough, anyway. I mean if OP encounters ANY French audio they're immediately going to figure it out, so...

comment Pronunciation of plurals?
"Le" is pronounced like "duh" with an L instead of a D. "Les" is pronounces like "way" with an L instead of a W. Rouge and rouges are pronounced the same-- the s at the end is normally silent and has no effect on pronunciation.
