I was wondering if there was a lesson on the verb devoir because I'm not seeing it.
At the present, there isn't one for this particular meaning of 'devoir'. Although, I have included some examples to reflect its use as 'to owe'.
‘devoir' = 'to owe’
Je dois de l’argent à mon oncle = I owe my uncle money
Il doit de l’argent à tout le monde = he owes everyone money
Tu me dois un sacré service = you owe me a very big favour
Thomas doit beaucoup à sa fille = Thomas owes a lot to his daughter
Il doit son amour de la littérature à sa mère = he owes his love of literature to his mother
‘se devoir’ = to owe one another:
Les époux se doivent fidélité = married couples owe each other fidelity.
Link to the our glossary on 'devoir' : lessons/devoir
I hope this is helpful.
Thanks Celine it's what I was looking for
