Double negatives aren't never confusing

· · Web · 4 · 2 · 3

@DepressedWeeb All I remember from the year of French I took was that it was very confusing on that topic

@levisan I heard that the French language was artifically made difficult by the French elites and the Academy so that their plebs don't speak the language. This is why they have weird pronunciation rules and writing rules. Maybe double negatives is one of those rules that they made up but Burmese language etc also has it so maybe it's natural but exclusive to the French language.

@levisan
I doubt that counts as proper English to start with.
