    Just say death of the author.

    is this a come back for me not helping in the mahoutsukai project. stuff happened, ok.

    if you want to be strict about grammar, then technically the correct article that should be used would be ''du'' (de + le) since auteur is masculine, the only reason they use ''de la'' instead is because of the people who reject feminine forms of words that got femininsed later on, which apparently can be confusing at whether it means la mort d'(e)auteur or la mort d'(u)atueur to the people who use auteur for both feminine and masculine despite there being a separate feminine form for it (auteure).

    nothing grammatically wrong with what I wrote, it's just a different way of phrasing it.

    Theseus is simultaneously recorded as Medea's son and as an Argonaut, and you can't reconcile that into one walking talking person because myths are literally larger than life.

    So far its just because nobody's got tech good enough.

    Also technically falls under rezzing the dead which is still a no-no in the rulebook.

    Nope, this has nothing to do with what you wrote, the correct way to write it is "la mort de l'auteur", certainty not "du" (you don't put a determinant ending in a vowel before a word starting with a vowel, that makes for something very awkward to say).

    What you originally wrote would translate to "death of author" instead of "death of the author", because you seem to have forgotten that "l apostrophe" is a thing that exists. Simple as that.

    Just to be pedant, if they are in a "superposition state" they are both genuine AND false at the same time.

    "fanon is canon until proven otherwise" is an awful stance and I hate it.

    I think people (here and elsewhere) obsess too much on what is canon and what is not.

    I personally came here for discussions over translations. I was a superhero comic fan for more than 30 years, I don't really obsess over canon anymore nowadays.

    With all the authors and how expanded the universe has become comic books are actually a pretty good comparison.
    Though is the was comment noting that you formerly were one?

    Eh, time passes, people change. I still have a bunch of them and I still buy some paperback collections every now and then, but I stopped being an avid comic book collector somewhere between 5 and 10 years ago.

    sigh...

    the title was literally written like that before the french academy even approved of the feminine forms separation...what is this, the 50s?

    http://www.academie-francaise.fr/act...t-de-fonctions

    certainty not "du" (you don't put a determinant ending in a vowel before a word starting with a vowel, that makes for something very awkward to say).
    you don't put an article ending with a vowel either before a word starting with a vowel, hence why the ''apostrophe'' as a contraction exist.

    What you originally wrote would translate to "death of author" instead of "death of the author"
    Only if you assume the contraction is based on ''de'' instead of ''du''.

    because you seem to have forgotten that "l apostrophe" is a thing that exists. Simple as that.
    I'm indeed aware of l' but then you seem to forget that when de pecede le it then becomes du and d' by extention as well in case it precede a vowel.

    you may argue that using de l'(e) for vowels is better than du/d' since it's less ambiguous but again, that's a matter of taste not grammar.

    like I said, some people avoid this by simply sticking to the former fasion from the days of using words that originally lacked feminine forms in a both masculine and feminine fashion like the old days (like, decades ago) but that by no means excuse them for rejecting the alternatives when other people use it.

    all in all, this is like a ''singular they'' level of debate but baguette version.

    edit: you know, now you intrigued me at what your reaction would be at people using ''c'' for ''c'est'' because not to be pedant or anything, but old textbook way of viewing things is kinda...unfit in the internet
