Inexpensive or economical both work in English, but I agree, cheap often has a negative connotation of poor quality. You can recommend something as inexpensive, or complain that it is cheap
Is there anyway to tell when 'è' is being used? I can't hear it pronounced when words with a similar sound come right after- like in this sentence.
why do you have "economic" as one of the translations if you do not consider that answer right for your question?.
Context matters - "economic toothpaste" doesn't make much sense.
Well, in British English certainly, you can say 'the toothpaste is economical', meaning it is good value for money.
(American English speaker) Right: "economic" is not a suitable translation here but "economical" is.
When you say "è economico", do you pronounce 'è', or just skip it and say "dentifricio economico"?
You would pronounce "è", or your sentence would probably be heard as "our cheap toothpaste".
affordable should also be accepted
"our tooth paste is affordable" is not correct?
Inexpensive shouldn't be rejected as an answer
How would someone say cheap in a bad way? Like "Dont buy that one its cheap"??
Something cheap could be low price, but also of poor quality.
That's kind of random...
Way to get cavities.
Don't boast about it. Tightwads.
Translating 'economico' as 'cheap', from an English point of view, can suggest that the toothpaste is not very good, hence inexpensive is a better translation.
