Is it necessary Write

Censé or sense? This spelling mistake is quite common, but this article will prevent you from making it, once and for all!

The choice between "censé" and "meaning" is a textbook case. To make a mistake is to make one of those spelling mistakes that are quite common, but which can be the wrong gender. These two terms, although phonetically similar, actually mean something different. have distinct meanings and are used in different contexts. Explanations.

The term "meaning" is derived from from the Latin word "sensus," which translates to "meaning" or "reason." As an adjective, "meaning" describes something as logical, reasonable or judicious. So with the word “sensible” you express the idea of ​​a reasonable or sensible action in a certain context. It is used, for example, to say that a person is “sensible”, that they have “common sense”, that they are “reasonable” or that they are “reasonable”. in his choices.

The term "censé" finds its roots in the Latin "censere," which means "estimate" or "to judge." In French, it is mainly used in French. as an adjective meaning "supposed" or "destinyé "". It still means "who must". 

The key The choice between these two terms often lies in the context of the sentence. If the intention is to convey an obligation or assumption, "cens" is the appropriate choice. And it is easy to know if this is the term to use. How? If it is possible to replace it with "supposed".

So, between the phrase "I'm supposed to" join her" and "I am sensibleé “join her”, which is the correct one? Since the sentence can also be “I am supposed to join her”, which is the correct one? join her" or "I should join her", then you should write "I am supposed to join her" join her. The phrase suggests that the person has a moral or social obligation to attend to their needs. a specific place. But be careful, it can also be "meaning" to go and join this person, right? But the meaning of the sentence is not the same!

"Supposed" is also the most frequently used. For example, we will often say "It is supposed to be arrive at 8 hours", "It is supposed to be do this work" to express that it is expected or expected of a person. The predominance of "census" in common usage reflects its wider scope in everyday language, there where "meaning" finds its usefulness in more specific contexts, linked to rationality or at logic.

In our initial example, to use “sens” correctly, the sentence would also be turned differently to be truly correct.&nbsp ; We would rather write or say "It makes sense" to join it", in the sense of "It is logical to join it". This time, we apply the term to a coherent and justified idea or action, showing clear thinking or logic.

The subtlety of the between "censé" and "meaning" may seem disconcerting at first, but the nuance is nevertheless very clear. The key lies in understanding the context and selecting the term that corresponds to the meaning. the intention that we wish to communicate.
