  5. "This fish is white!"

"This fish is white!"

Translation:Ta ryba jest biała!

January 10, 2016



can I say "ta ryba to biała" ?


No. You cannot use the "to" construction if it is followed just by an adjective.

You may think of this "to" a bit as if it was an "=" sign. If you say "This fish = a white animal", it's okay. But you can't say "This fish = white".
