Discuss and learn French: French vocabulary, French grammar, French culture etc.
What is the difference between the words 's'arrêter' and 'arrêter' ?
The dictionary says that the both words mean to stop.
Police stop the protesters marching towards the prime minister's office.
( In the above, I don't know whether to use 's'arrêter' or 'arrëter' )
1. Elle arrête de fumer.
2. Je arrête de fumer.
Are my sentences correct?
One of the online dictionary says you should use 'arrêter' when turning off electrical appliances.
I am a bit confused because when I shut down my mobile phone, it uses the word 's'arrěter'.
On my mobile phone, I have French as the default language. When I shut it down, I read the words 'va s'arrêter'.
I appreciate if you shed some light on my question.
I wasn't aware of that. See, here we all something new.
