s'il vous plaît



Alternative formsEdit



s’il vous plaît ("if it pleases you")

  1. (formal) please, if you please
    Pourriez-vous me donner du pain, s'il vous plaît ?

Usage notesEdit

  • S’il vous plaît is used to address someone formally (being polite or speaking with elders), using vous, or to address more than one person; when using the phrase informally (with friends and family), one would use tu, hence s’il te plaît.

Warning: Display title "s’il vous plaît" was ignored since it is not equivalent to the page's actual title.
