1 Le partitif - Talking about some... Or all

2 You already know these expressions: J’aime J’adore Je déteste WHEN YOU FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT SOME- THING, YOU LIKE, LOVE, OR HATE ALL OF IT. YOU USE THE DEFINITE ARTICLE FOLLOWING THESE PHRASES

3 When you like, love or hate something J’adore la glace! Tu aimes les chines. Il adore les bananes. Nous détestons les devoirs. Vous aimez le café. On aime les desserts. I love ice cream! You like dogs. He loves bananas. We hate homework. You like coffee. People like dessert!

4 Other verbs use “the partitive” The partitive means “part of it” not “all of it.” We use the following forms before the noun for part of something: de la du de l’ des

5 Other verbs and “some!” Elle veut de l’eau. Je veux de la glace. Nous voulons des frites. Ils achètent du fromage. Tu prends du pain et du beurre. She wants some water. I want some ice cream. We want some fries. They’re buying some cheese. You’re having bread and butter.

6 Le partitif au negatif: “any” In the negative, we can usually use the word any when we are using the partitive. In this case we just use the word “de” ALL of the time. Je n’ai pas DE pommes. I don’t have any apples. Il n’achète pas DE carottes. He’s not buying any carrots. Vous ne voulez pas DE pain. You’re not buying any bread. Ils n’ont pas DE sœurs. They don’t have any sisters. Tu ne veux pas d’eau. You don’t want any water.

7 Without the partitive... When you use those verbs “aimer” “adorer” and “détester” you don’t need the partitive. If I don’t like bananas, I don’t like any of them. Je n’aime pas LES bananes. I don’t like bananas. Je ne déteste pas LES devoirs. I don’t hate homework.
