Pronouns

Je parle de mon frere.
Why is it "J'en parle." I thought en is only for things and not for people. Should it be Je lui parle. ?

  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. The pronoun "en" replaces "de + noun," and GENERALLY refers to things. It can however also refer to a person as in "de mon frère" = I speak of him. Of course you could also use a "Stress/Disjunctive Pronoun" = Je parle de lui.
