Autour de

Why was autour de used rather than environ?

Hi David 

The sentence is -

... avec des pointes attendues autour de 28 , voire même ... = ...even with expected peaks around 28, or even ...

You could say instead -

d'environ 28 

but not environ on its own 

or d'à peu près 28 

but the 'de' has to be there

Hope this help!

Why are there verbes included in the french language?

Pourquoi est que les verbes sont crées dans la langue français?
