Can the words "les hommes du maison" be translated to both "the men of the house" and "the men from the house" or just one of them?

    Either translation is possible, but "from the house" is less likely to be used in English. To me, "from the house" would imply the men were residents of a particular college fraterity "house".

    As SraJMcGin has noted, there was gender mismatch in your French phrase. I should have noticed that.

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Are you positive you copied this correctly? The problem is that "la maison" is a feminine word and either "of the house" or "from the house" would be "de la maison." You might have "de maison" which is like "house men."
