Why do we write and say jaime, not je aime? The reason is what we call the A, Er, Eee, Oh, Ooo, Ash rule (the a, e, i, o, u, h rule). We avoid a mushy sound (try saying je aime…). No words can end in a vowel+h and be next to another word starting with a vowel+h. RULE 1: A, Er, Eee, Oh, Ooo, Ash
Why is it that when we translate a English opinion (I like horses) into French it becomes I like the horses (Jaime le chevals)? This is the basis for rule 2: you MUST put le/la/les in front of your noun and behind your opinion (I like the [noun]). RULE 2: Le/la/les
Whenever we make something negative, we put ne pas around the word (Je ne suis pas, Je naime pas etc.) This is the third rule: to make something negative you put ne pas around your statement ((I) am, (I) like etc.) Try making these negative: Je suis (I am) Je déteste (I hate) Jadore (I love) RULE 3: Transforming into negatives!
