Message de maureplain posté le 2004-04-26 12:17:28 (S | E | F | I)
How to translate this French sentence in English ? :
"Je vous ai dèjà dit que j'avais trois chats" (and I have always them)


Réponse: re de rosminet, postée le 2004-04-26 13:31:29 (S | E)
I'm sorry Maureplain, I don't have any cats !!!! Hihihihi

More seriously :
"I've already said that I've had 3 cats."

(I think !)


Réponse: re de chrisg, postée le 2004-04-27 06:50:34 (S | E)
I already told you I had 3 cats.


Réponse: The bet de maureplain, postée le 2004-04-27 10:04:52 (S | E)
Thanks to rosminet and chrisg but I ask for an arbitrator for there is money in it. I have bet ten euros on one of your suggestion with my daughter.
I can mail you the answer you have to give and we will share the money. Don't talk about this deal, please.


Réponse: re de rosminet, postée le 2004-04-27 11:15:20 (S | E)
I'd like to propose another sentence :
"I've already told you that I've had 3 cats."

Above all, I want to know the solution !!!


Réponse: Solution de maureplain, postée le 2004-04-28 16:35:32 (S | E)
But I haven't solution, It's a question.
If anyone is sure, he must ask about !


Réponse: re de rosminet, postée le 2004-04-28 17:22:04 (S | E)
"I've already told you that I've had 3 cats"

I think that the second part is "I've had 3 cats" because you have always them. And the first part because already is very often used with present perfect.

Where's Gizm0. I'm sure she should help us !!!


Réponse: re de eirin, postée le 2004-04-28 17:35:10 (S | E)
well, let's have a try...
I would not use the present perfect for "I've had three cats" which implies that you don't have them anymore...(I think)
I would say : I already told you (that) I have 3 cats.
I found in my grammar book "il n'y a pas en anglais de modification de temps (reported speech) lorsque le propos rapporté est toujours vrai au moment ou l'on parle" , which is the case with your cats...I think you can use the present tense in the second part of your sentense...
hopefully it will help you...


Réponse: In French de maureplain, postée le 2004-04-28 17:40:49 (S | E)
Sorry, but je le dis en français : comme quoi ce n'est pas si simple, même pour une phrase, somme toute, très banale....


Réponse: re ouuuuu GizmO de ginette, postée le 2004-05-14 04:28:22 (S | E)
I would like your idea on this sentence I come back often to know the answer of you ....I would say : I have already said that I had three cats. According to you ...which one of us has a good answer ?...


Réponse: re sorry ... de ginette, postée le 2004-05-14 04:43:08 (S | E)
I forgot that he still have his 3 cats
je vous ai déjà dit que j`avais 3 chats
I have already told you that I have 3 cats

Good or not ? tell me gizmO


Réponse: re))))))))))))))))) de lass_lacine, postée le 2004-05-14 12:00:28 (S | E)
i already told you i have 3 cats


Réponse: re de flo-flo, postée le 2004-05-16 17:48:42 (S | E)
Je vous ai déja dit que j'avais 3 chats.
I've already told you that I had 3 cats


Réponse: re de romane, postée le 2004-06-02 17:00:31 (S | E)
I've already told you I have three cats .
is that good?


Réponse: re: I'm not sure de sitty, postée le 2004-06-03 16:43:53 (S | E)
It's really a brain-teasing, but I think that: "I've already told you that I have three cats" may be good!


Réponse: to romane & sitty de mariet, postée le 2004-06-04 13:36:47 (S | E)
I agree with you. I think I would say so too.


Réponse: re answer please de minouche15, postée le 2004-07-05 19:43:09 (S | E)
I'd like to come again on the Maureplain's sentence . I 'd write it like Ginette :" I have already told you that I have 3 cats ". Urgent : an answer please, don't let me in this terrible suspense ! ... and don't forget to correct me . thank you ...


Réponse: re An answer please de minouche15, postée le 2004-07-05 20:02:37 (S | E)
I think I could do a mistake, my first message didn't work !...
I try again ...

I'd like to come again on the Maureplain's sentence - I'd write like Ginette :" I have already told you that I have 3 cats ". An answer please, don't let me in this terrible suspense !... and don't forget to correct me . Thank you .

I hope that this message will pass this time .


Réponse: re de Rash, postée le 2004-07-05 21:06:51 (S | E)
do you have problem with cats or French?


Réponse: re To rash from minouche15 de minouche15, postée le 2004-07-06 13:03:41 (S | E)
No Rash, it's not a problem with my French, ...with cats perhaps, I prefer dogs, big dogs !... only with my English language too ...

And I found ...LOL... it was my computer which did not work well ...No
more seriousely, I did not know using it and moving in this forum well,
I forgot to look at the end on the page number two !...

How can you translate that ? " j'étais en retard d'un train " !..

My friendship to Morocco so much dear to my heart .

See you soon .
