Y is for Y

Y. The shortest word in the French language and yet so very, very useful.

Y means 'here', or 'there'. It means 'of them', 'of it', 'of whatever it is you are talking about.'

Who would have thought such a little, one letter word would have such far reaching consequences?

"How many biscuits are there?" "Il y en a trois." I rest my case.


  1. lol Funny! I never thought of it as a word, but I guess you're right. Sometimes it's so difficult to use, especially when speaking. I lived a year in France, many moons ago. I like your blog.
