French for Miche

posted by .

For some reason I missed your question the other day about "C'est délicieux, etc." and I thought you might like an explanation.

The pronoun "ce" (c') meaning "it, he, she, this, that, they, these, those" is used only with the verb être. "Ce" replaces "il, elle, ils, elles" in front of a masculine singular adjecive to refer to an "idea" or "action" previously mentioned. In this case, the English equivalent of "ce" is "it" or "that." However, in referring to a preceeding noun, "il" and "elle" are used.

"C'est délicieux, les pommes." (the idea is delicious)
However: "les pommes sont délicieuses." (Now the adjective reflects the plural feminine noun.)
AND "les pommes, elles sont délicieuses." (Having stated the noun, now "elles" refers back to the subject.)
