    There is a logic problem flying around the internet and now also the television. I found it hard to even think about the problem because of the use of the word "too" rather than "either"! Is there...

    amai

    2) a-ma-i

    Ho pensato che "ai" fosse un dittongo, ma il mio libro divide la parola "a-ma-i" ma senza molto commento. Penso che il fatto che 'e...

    Re: podeis

    I actually read that page earlier today, but I think that according to it, one would be led to put the stress on the first syllable. I guess you have to drop the s before applying the rules there,...

  13. Conjunctivo or Subjunctivo?

    I just realized there seem to be two options. Am I right about that? Which is preferred in Portugal? In Brazil? How did it come to be that there are two?

    Thanks Teerex. Man you look a lot like an old friend! But I still don't understand how they can be many and occasional. In English, "occasional" implies not often, ie not many.

    But when is it ever muet, outside of Normandy?

    Bescherelle sect. 10 gives the conjugation of peser and says of its group: "verbes ayant un e muet à l'avant-dernière syllabe de l'infinitif: verbes en e(.)er".

    I don't see any e muet.
