What is the capital of Tunisia?

Usage of “de” that is before an adjective

de” is not in that sentence a preposition but an article required for “Américains” like one would be in:

  • Pour les Américains, …
  • Pour des Américains, …

Note that in the similar

  • Pour nombre d‘Américains, …

d” is not an article but an elided preposition “de“:

  • “For a large number of Americans”

Note that the article used is different depending on whether the adjective precedes the noun or follows it:

(1) De nombreux Américains considèrent que …

(2) Des Américains influents considèrent que …
