      Usage notes

      * While English does have the partitive determiner Inter: term » some, the French article Inter: term » |de la frequently translates to nothing at all in English; for example, the above example « J'ai mangé de la tarte ? » could also be translated simply as “I ate pie.”

  • Like the definite article Inter: term » la (from which it derives), the partitive article Inter: term » |de la undergoes elision, becoming Inter: term » de l'-|de l’- before most words that start with vowel sounds.
