Évidemment vs. Bien sûr

Cornelia B2Kwiziq Q&A regular contributor

Évidemment vs. Bien sûr

I used “Évidemment” instead of “Bien sûr” for the term “Of course”, and it was not included as any of the accepted terms. Could you please explain the appropriate use of “évidemment”? Several dictionaries translate it as “of course”, but perhaps there is a usage nuance that I do not understand? 

Thank you for your remarkably helpful site!!

Hi Cornelia,

I checked the answers and ‘évidemment’ is given as one on the alternative possibilities for ‘of course’ with ‘bien entendu’ .

Thank you for your kind comments about the Kwiziq site,  we do appreciate them.

Bonne Continuation!
