Why is "le Docteur compétent Quinn" wrong, and how should that sentence be corrected? Thanks!
This question relates to:French lesson "Other adjectives that go BEFORE nouns"
12 June 2018
If adjectives relate to a specific person, they often go before that person's name or designation. For example:
La pauvre Marie. -- Poor Marie.Le compétent Docteur Quinn. -- The competent Dr. Quinn.
-- Chris (not a native speaker).
Oh, I just saw that this is explained pretty well in the lesson anyway. Did you have a question regarding that explanation?
