THE or not THE ? That is THE question...
Message de marie11 posté le 08-02-2007 à 10:00:19 (S | E | F | I)

Bonjour.

Savoir si l'on doit ou non employer l'article the est un des points les plus délicats de l'anglais. La règle générale est de l'utiliser quand on sait avec précision de quoi l'on parle. Mais les exceptions sont légion....

A vous, donc, de faire le choix judicieux dans les phrases suivantes.


Je proposerai une correction mardi prochain 13 février.


1- Le café m'empêche de dormir.
2- Aimez-vous le vin blanc ? J'ai besoin de savoir ce que je dois acheter pour la soirée.
3- Autrefois, j'adorais les framboises, maintenant je n'en mange plus car j'y suis allergique.
4- Nous avons pris du poulet pour le dîner, parce que c'est la seule viande qu'elle mange.
5- L'université qu'il fréquentait est maintenant fermée.
6- La beauté n'est pas tout !
7- Nous avons passé l'été au bord de la mer.
8- J'aimerais bien aller aux États-Unis l'été prochain.
9- Les États-Unis sont-ils le plus grand pays du monde ?
10- Les mathématiques sont la matière que je préfére.

Une petite révision pour finir.
11- Il n'a fait qu'une seule faute.

Hello, Marie 11 !

Here is my essay, at last...

1) Coffee prevents me from sleeping / keeps me awake
2) Do you like white wine ? I need to know what to buy for the party.
3) I used to love raspberries but I've given up eating them since I became allergic to.
4) We've bought chicken for dinner, as it's the only meat she eats.
5) The university he used to go to is closed now.
6) Beauty is not enough !
7) We spent the summer by the sea.
8) I'd like to go to the United States next summer.
9) Are the United States the greatest / the most prestigiouscountry in the world ?
10) Mathematics is the subject I like best.
( It must be for magstmarc, since, as far as I'm concerned, I don't! Maths was my father's choice, not mine...)
11) He made only one mistake.

Thank you for this useful exercise.

Bonjour.

Voici quelques commentaires et remarques préliminaires.

I- Le francophone, habitué à employer un nom précédé de son article, a tendance à faire de même lorsqu'il s'exprime en anglais.
Or, le régime des noms est différent d'une langue à l'autre.
D'une maniére générale, et sans entrer dans le détail, on peut dire que l'emploi de l'article the est limité à des noms définis,déterminés.
Si le nom évoque une généralité on omet l'article the.

II - Distinction entre must et have to :

Au présent, l'obligation se traduit par must, have to, parfois have got to.
Must, traduit la volonté de celui qui parle, alors que have to exprime une obligation impersonnelle ( il faut le faire, parce que c'est imposé)

« You must show me your passport » the customs officer said
Of course, you have to show your passport, but it doesn't take long.

III- Les noms terminés en ics

classics, economics, electronics, mathematics, optics, physics, politics.... sont des noms dont la forme est un pluriel, mais qui sont utilisés avec un verbe au singulier.

Physics is said to be less abstract than mathematics.

Mais on emploie un verbe au pluriel avec ces noms lorsqu'il n'est plus question de généralité.(le nom est précédé de l'article ou d'un possessif)

His maths are hopeless ──> Il est nul en maths.


Voici ma suggestion.

1- Coffee prevents me from sleeping.
2- Do you like white wine ? I need to know what I have to buy for the party.
3- I used to be fond of raspberries, but now I no longer eat them because I'm allergic to them.
4- We had chicken for dinner because that's the only meat she eats.
5- The university he went to, is now closed.
6- Beauty isn't everything.
7- We spent the summer by the sea.
8- I'd like to go to the United States next summer.
9- Is the United States the largest country in the world ?
10- Mathematics (maths) is my favourite subject. (favorite AmE)
11 He's made only one mistake.

Je vous remercie de votre participation.
