Placement of 'certain'
One B1 exercise has us translate "There is some risk". I think the translation depends on where you put the stress: "There is SOME risk" i.e. some uncertainty about the risk: Il y a un certain risque. Or alternatively "There IS some risk". Now the risk is certain: Il y a un risque certain.
