I was reading the new article and this confused me.

Quote :
"Pas envie que l'Equipe de France ne s'arrête qu'à moi"

That's like a double negative. It seems like it says "I don't want the French team to not stop at me." I could be completely wrong about the translation altogether, but it's really the double negative thing I'm asking about. That's not the first time I've seen that. I'm guessing that whenever you use the negative in French it stays negative and two negative expressions don't cancel each other out. Is that right? So he's saying "I don't want the French team to stop with me." lol Or am I totally wrong? scratch

I learnt a bit French but alone and I noticed that Frenchmen use double negative when they are writing some sentences and when they say they don't use the French "ne".
They use "ne" and "pas" in simple times like the present time:
Je ne viens pas au telephone.
I didn't come to the telephone.
They also use "ne" and "pas" in not simple times (folded times) like passe compose:
Nous ne sommes pas arrives a Paris.
We haven't arrive to Paris.

So in sentence: "Pas envie que l'Equipe de France ne s'arreye qu'a moi' is only one negative Very Happy
It will probably be: "I want the French team to not stop at me" or "I don't want the French team to stop at me".

I hope I helped Very Happy

C'est la négation ,ne ,pas .
Si une personne dit " ne viens pas au téléphone" c'est la négation rien à voir avec un temps de conjugaison ,lol!
Mon avis ,lol!


It is negation, ne, pas .
If a person says "ne viens pas au téléphone" it is negation nothing to see with a time of conjugation, lol!
My opinion, lol!

Alexxxxxxxxxxxxxx qu'en penses-tu?
