16.4 Anticipation and referrence to contexts

In the following you can see that it is possible and sometimes necessary to have an anticipation of a following context, and sometimes it is a reference that happens after the context was mentioned. Let's have some examples to make it clearer.

  Overview  
Example with anticipation of the context
  In some cases French sentences (may) use a pronoun to emphasize certain facts, in the following example the is an additional "l".
  Mais je te l' ai dit que c' est quelqu' un de complètement stupide!
  But I have told (it to) you that he is someone totally stupid!  
  (backwards) referrence of the context  
  Here we use the pronominal adverbs as seen in chapter 16.3  
  Est-ce que tu as assez d' argent? Oui, j' en ai assez.
  Do you have enough money? Yes, I have enough (of it).
