de l'

  1. some; the singular prevocalic partitive article
    Voudriez-vous de l’ail ?Would you like some garlic?

Usage notesEdit

  • While English does have the partitive determiner some, the French article de l’- frequently translates to nothing at all in English; for example, the above example « Voudriez-vous de l’ail ? » could also be translated simply as “Would you like garlic?”
