Help With French Translation

post #1 of 13

Could someone translate, both into French AND English, this audio clip. My American ears can't hear whether the pronoun is singular or plural.
Gangs are not seen as legitimate, because they don't have control over public schools.

Note that my french ears canno't make the difference between il and ils. The difference singular and plural come from the verb avoir.
j'ai
tu as
il a
nous avons
vous avez
ils ont.
If it was the plural : ils the sentance should have been :
ils les ont tués.

You know, Powerdoc, ever since I was a kid in high school taking my French, I have been convinced that 90% of all French conversations are people saying either "Wait. Was that singular or plural" or "Wait. When you said 'de' did you mean on, by, about, or for?"

You've just confirmed it for me!

I would have to guess that nearly four years later he's either resolved his translation or gone mad.

Guys -- I love you all to death, but the only thing that AI is missing is a full-on JonesTown Kool-Aid festival.


Good night and good luck!

In our desire to impose form on the world we have lost the capacity to see the form that is there;
and in that lies not liberation but alienation, the cutting off from things as they really are. --...
