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"?
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.
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'?
