«Depuis, impossible de trouver une position qui puisse soulager la douleur. Je ne peux ni dormir, ni m'allonger, ni me déplacer correctement.» Can the first sentence really stand on its own? It would make more sense to me if this were all one long sentence with a comma after “douleur”. Am I wrong?
Dictation exercise C1
Julia, this is an exercise in spoken French, not formal writing .
The grammar reasonably reflects the conversation. It is not unusual to hear fragments and interrupted sentences with disconnected thoughts etc - at C1 level, it is definitely to be expected.
