How would you say "all the shops are closed"?
And this one can mean either
כל החנויות סוגרות
כל החנויות סגורות
Can someone comment on when in english to use 'all the stores' or 'all stores'; does the second form even exist?
Both are interchangeably used with no difference at all whatsoever. The second even sounds more correct, although the first one is correct as well
Akhshav kol ha-khanuyot nisgarot.
All the stores, all stores, all of the stores. All acceptable.
What about "all stores are being closed"?
Our sentence above means that, without the word "now" (עכשיו).
זֶה מְעַנְיֵין לְפָחוֹת בִּשְׁבִילִי, שמִילִּים חֲנוּת, תַּחֲנַת, חֲנִיָּיה וּמַחֲנֵה הֵם כֻּולָּם קְשׁוּרִים.
It's interesting at least for me, that the words shop, station, parking and camp are all related.
I was marked wrong for "Now all the stores are closed". Can anyone tell me why?
