I think it's way too early introduce "meg" and "pedig" instead of simple "és"....
I understand, that "A pedig B" (whereas) is hinting to opposing traits between A and B.
But what is the difference between "meg" and "és"?
Is there any difference when to use "es" and when "meg"?
I understand the point of meg in the sentence, but can I switch the order to "Ez egy lány, meg ez egy fiú'?
If you want to use "meg" in the sentence, it must stay after "ez". However, You may also use the following sentence: "Ez egy lány, de ez egy fiú". Both sentences mean the same thing.
You can also say "Ez egy lány és ez egy fiú", which means the same thing.
I thought "de" means "but"
What is the role of "meg" in this sentence?
It's a conjunction word.
Yes, we know it's a (coordinating) conjunction, but what's the difference between it and 'és', and why the different word order: 'és ez' or 'ez meg'?
This is correct
