Samedi prononciation : blanc

A lot of final consonants are silent in French. For example, the "c" in "blanc" is not pronounced. But it still has a purpose. Because there's a "c" at the end of "blanc", we know that the feminine will have something to do with a "c". And indeed, it's "blanche".

The final consonants of "vert", "gris", and "violet" are all silent (don't say the "t", the "s", and the "t"). But look at the feminine of these words (you can find it in Monday's post) and you'll see that these final consonants give you a hint as to what the feminine is.

(Also note that adding an "e" after the final consonant makes that it's pronounced. For instance, in "verte", the "t" is pronounced because there's an e after the "t".)

Vendredi visuel : peinture abstraite

Sur cette peinture, il y a un fond noir et des traits de couleur : on voit des tons rouges, des tons marron, peut-être même quelques tons orange. Il y a aussi du blanc, du jaune, et un peu de bleu.

Jeudi syntaxe : color adjective placement

As you may know, adjectives in French can be placed before or after the noun, but depending on the type of adjective, one choice is more frequent. For color adjectives, the most frequent placement is after the noun: la maison blanche, le mur vert, etc.
