Hi,

Can I say "I maintain my question/answer." for "Je maintiens ma question/réponse." ???

    Pieanne,

    I think 'is still on' is usually used for an invitation or an event (our lunch engagement is still on), but for a question or answer, I'd use 'remains the same' or 'still holds'.

    With answer, Floise's answer is definitely what one would say most often. For the question part, you will often hear, I repeat + original question e.g. I repeat, What do you think caused the fires?, or I repeat my question what.... OR I'll ask you again, what...
