Discuss and learn French: French vocabulary, French grammar, French culture etc.
i saw this sentence:
"Le quartier devient invivable. La police ne se déplace même plus."
i would think it needs to say "...ne s'y de'place..." to refer back to le quartier. maybe it's optional -- it means the police don't move from where they are, but the "y" isn't necessary cuz it doesn't say where they would move to if they did move.
It means "La police ne se déplace même plus dans ce quartier quand quelqu'un l'appelle"
As "Le quartier" is already clarify in the first sentence, it's not useful to refer back to "le quartier". It's possible but if not it's still right.
