Talk:non plus

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I hope I am using this discussion page correctly. I took French for six years, but now I tend to get confused. Doesn't "non plus" also stand for its literal definition in French as "no more"? Or does it just mean "neither/either" (as in the wiktionary entry)?

Hi, as a French, I can’t see any example where "non plus" means "no more". "no more" is usually translated as "ne ... plus". For example:
I want no more polysemic words -- Je ne veux plus de mots polysémiques.
Did you have a precise example in mind? --Kipmaster 22:52, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

The page for "non plus" (as opposed to "nonplus") should not be removed, because it does the useful work of explaining the meaning of the French term, a popular request because of the Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot song, "Je t'aime... moi non plus."

RfV tag since June 2007. Not cited during 9 months in RfV. We have long had nonplus. I have added non-plus which is abundantly attestable. I have not found English for the inflected forms of non plus. I have not determined an easy effective way to separate English non plus from Latin and French.
