Hi,

Is "si besoin" a contraction of "si vous en avez besoin"?

Hi Greg,

The expressions 'si besoin' or even 'si besoin est' mean,  'if need be'  and are short versions of 's'il y a besoin' .

Just like the expression 'si nécessaire'  is used for 'if necessary' and is a short version of  'si c'est nécessaire' .

Hope this helps!

Hi Greg,

Yes! I would say so in the sense of "If you have need of them"

Does this help?
