Hello.

I am trying to say, "of course academics think that if it causes offence, it must be worth saying."

My attempt is, "bien sûr les universitaires croient que s'il provoque offense, il faut qu'il soit....." :(

I'm struggling a lot with this sentence and would appreciate anyone's help. :)

    Hi,

    I Would say "bien sûr les universitaires pensent que si c'est offensant, ce doit être bon à dire ..."

    But a bit more context would be helpfull because that sentence does not really make sense to me.

    "Bien sûr les universitaires pensent qu'un propos qui dérange vaut toujours la peine d'être tenu."
    I just made this one up: "Parole qui blesse, parole qui intéresse"
