    I meant the other example, not Octopus'



    "Je ne fais rien travail. J'ai été malade, paresseuse aussi et (ainsi que) j'étais occupée avec des autres choses"

    Do you agree? ^^ or would you use j'ai été again?
    Je n'ai rien fait du travail. J'ai été/Je m'est sentie malade et aussi paresseuse, et j'ai été occupée avec des autres choses.

    Perhaps. :P I still don't get the difference between 'd'autres' and 'des autres', but that's what I come up with. :/ I feel like I should be much better than this, but alas, brain fade and revision are eating me. :confused:

    I agree with that one actually, and it probably is d'autres... Although I also dont know the difference if any!

    Ma dictionnaire a dit que "busy with something"- occupé(e) à quelque.

    Also isn't the difference between d'autres and des autres similar to that between l'autre and les autres?

    So I say "beaucoup d'autres"- a lot of others, but des autres. Is that all wrong?

    That's the whole phrase I think, with the "something"

    After beaucoup you only say du which is why it definitely shortens to d'autres

    Shortening 'de'/dis-article-ing 'de' happens when there's a quantity next to it - '500 grammes DE pommes' MAIS 'J'ai besoin des pommes'. :/ But I've seen 'd'autres' in other places as well which confuses me greatly

    I presume you meant to say 'de' here, not 'du'?

    Yesterday I watched Le chat du rabbin, I recommend it for any French speakers (and anyone else for that matter).

    Jeg går ud fra, at der ikke er nogen der forstår dansk her? :sad:

    Ooh, why, if you don't mind me asking? Also, what made you chose Danish, again, if you don't mind me asking?
