There are definitely a lot of insinuations, we have to accept a lot in order to understand; in this sense I think French is no different, there needs to be a general sense-making applied. Of course you wouldn’t teach people to drive drunk, and that common sense is how we understand. It’s challenging though when learning a language I think because we are still struggling with the literal meaning, and therefore translating it through common sense is daunting.
