wouldn't "the apple isn't black, rather it's red" be correct?
It sounds good to me.
it should be accepted
Well maybe it would be but it's red
My profile picture would disagree.
I used "that" for az and it scored me wrong because it was supposed to be "the" why?
Because "the" is a definite article while "that" is .. - not sure what the exact name is - a pointer.
The apple. -> Az alma.
That apple. -> Az az alma.
Why would an apple be black anyway But I love vonats
I have noticed that with these "contrast" sentences, the speaker puts emphasis on the "nem", but in English you would usually put emphasis on the adjective following the "not".
It's obviously understandable, but not a sentence you'd hear very often in English. "The apple isn't black. It's red." is more natural.
Well, consider the grammar teaching purposes. I'd say these sentences are sort of useful for learning emphasis.
Are piros and voros interchangeable?
