So I can get this straight.....Would it say העוגרת היפות if the sentence were "The beautiful cakes"? I'm trying to understand when "The cakes are beautiful" and when they are "The beautiful cakes"
The cakes are beautiful = העוגות יפות
Beautiful cakes = עוגות יפות
Yes, but "the beautiful cakes" is העוגות היפות
I wrote the same and it marked me wrong! :(
Is this adjective somehow used to mean "nice, good, OK"? Duolingo says it means only beautiful/pretty. Or is it paired with such nouns just for practice?
In this context, יפה only means beautiful/pretty. In others it can mean good, I think mostly when describing nouns that aren't material objects (like רעיון יפה = good idea, עבודה יפה = good job).
Why can't this be "the beautiful cakes"
the beautiful cakes = העוגות היפות
