For some reason I thought "en" was used when referring to ideas or non-descript things?
I know en is used to replace things with "de/du/de la" but...I thought it was also used to replace ideas, things, etc.
This question relates to:French lesson "Using le or l' to refer to previously mentioned ideas (direct object pronoun)"

Note first that "en" is never used to replace people. As for things, it depends on whether the original phrase it refers to is introduced by the preposition "de":E.g. Tu veux de l'eau ? Tu en veux ?E.g. Je me moque de ton pull. Je m'en moque.
Here are links to the lessons explaining when to use "en":
I hope that's helpful!
A bientôt !
