Bonjour à toutes et à tous, je dois rendre les exercices suivants pour demain soir (lundi), pouvez-vous me dire s'ils sont corrects ou s'il y a des corrections et des améliorations à apporter? Je vous remercie d'avance.

Bonsoir,
tout me semble correct sauf:

4 I whispered. I didn't want anybody else to hear our conversation. → I whispered so that nobody else could hear our conversation.
5 Please arrive early. We want to be able to start the meeting on time. → Please arrive early so that we can (me parait plus adéquat)we'll be able to start the meeting on time.

"suite à votre réponse au point 5 de mon dernier post (so that we can au lieu de so that we'll be able to), puis-je en conclure que so that n'est jamais suivi du futur, même si la proposition principale est au futur (idem when ou as soon as )? Par ailleurs, pouvez-vous me confirmer que je n'ai vraiment pas fait d'erreur en choisissant so that -- could(couldn't) ou so that --- would(wouldn't)dans les phrases au passé (dans le dernier exercice 'so that')?"


Bonsoir,
en réponse à votre mail,ma grammaire Berland Delépine me dit , paragraphe 403 que:
so that est suivi de may/might (couramment remplacés par can/could) ou de should. Le futur (we'll be able)ne me parait pas correct, peut-être parce que c'est un pur futur de pouvoir sans nuance de volonté. Would ne parait convenir dans vos autres phrases, à cause de cette nuance de volonté qu'il exprime .
Mais j'avoue que cette aversion à votre "we'll be able to" est instinctive plus que raisonnée.

Hello Gérondif, are you causing trouble?

The BBC says "so that" or "in order that" is usually used with modal auxiliary verbs.

Lien Internet


This includes "will". Am I understanding correctly?

Please arrive early so that we'll be able to start the meeting on time.

Hello notrepère, (You remind me of De Niro in "Taxi-driver": You're talking to me ????)

I would agree that so that can be followed by a modal, it is just that "will be able to" is for me a pure future, but as I said, I don't know why I feel allergic to it, that's why I said it doesn't look correct to me, expecting other points of view. Maybe I am influenced by the French where we can't say: "afin que je pourrai", we have to say: dépêchez-vous afin que nous puissions démarrer à l'heure."

for me, will is a modal only if it conveys a notion of will (la volonté)
In a sentence like :I'll come at 5" it's just an auxiliary verb for the future. A débattre!!

I have to leave now so that I can swim. See you in two hours !

Hello Gér,

Only a grammar teacher would *correct* a slang expression:

"You talking to me?"

How about this:

Please arrive early so that we are able to start the meeting on time

Of course, "be able to" is often used instead of "can"

But the more I read the original statement, the more I am bothered by the future tense too.

Bonjour,

je vous remercie pour vos réponses.

J'ai rendu ces exercices ce soir, après les avoir seulement modifiés en fonction de la première réponse de 'gerondif' (soit 'so that nobody' au lieu de 'so that anybody' et 'so that we can' au lieu de 'so that we'll be able').

Il en résulte que j'ai obtenu un "sans faute" sur l'ensemble de ces exercices.
Pour ce qui est de l'emploi de 'can' ou de 'be able to' dans le cas particulier qui semble faire débat, ma professeur d'Anglais nous a simplement dit que les 2 options étaient correctes. Pour ce qui concerne le passé, sauf erreur de ma part, il me semble qu'elle nous a dit que les 2 options 'could' ou 'would' étaient correctes, sauf à la forme négative où le 'would' serait impératif.

J'espère que j'ai bien tout retenu?



Cordialement.
