les a tous

les a tous

From the above notes, I undertand "les tous livres"=all the books 

and tous can be also used alone to refer to all (of something mentioned previously)

But I cannot find the explanation of "les a tous". I know it means “all of them” but what the role the "a" serves here?

Merci beaucoup!

Hi Nil,

Firsly, it is -

tous les livres all the books

e.g.

Il m'a apporté tous les livres qu'il avait à ce sujet = He brought me all the books he had on the subject 

Secondly , 'il les a tous'

Q: Il a tous les livres d'Astérix ? = Does he have all the Asterix books?

A: Oui, il les a tous = Yes, he has all of them 

'a' here is the verb 'avoir' in the present tense.

Bonne continuation!
