Possible mistakes in French?

  • I've been using the French course daily for around a week now, and I think I've seen some grammatical mistakes in French sentences:

    • Nouns without determiners
      Nouns often show up alone, especially after faire or avoir. I tried to look for an explanation, but I haven't found any source stating that objects of faire or avoir don't need any determiners. I've seen these very often.

    • Des followed by an adjective
      When followed by an adjective, the plural indefinite/partitive article should revert to de, but I've seen one or two sentences where it remained as des.

    • Noun adjuncts
      Sometimes noun phrases are composed solely of nouns. I think this is unacceptable in French, where you have to use de when combining two nouns.

    However, since I'm still relatively new to French, I could be wrong - please notify me either way!


  • Avoir raison is a legit phrase, it isn't a mistake.

    And for the rest, I don't really understand - could you give us some examples?
