What is triggering the use of 'en' in the sentence 'le destin en a décidé autrement' ? Is it the fact that 'décider' implies a clause starting with 'de' - or something else ?
I often can't see a simple 'de...' clause that could be interchanged with the 'en'.
Dictation exercise B2
That's an excellent question! It is the fact that " 'décider' implies a clause starting with 'de' " as you suggested.
Il peut décider de faire autrement = he can decide (to do) otherwise
Il peut en décider autrement = he can decide otherwise
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
Thank you Céline ! :)
