  5. "This is not his brown suit."

"This is not his brown suit."

Translation:Це не його коричневий костюм.

November 7, 2016



В українській мові є можливість змінити порядок слів: "це коричневий костюм не його".


No, that sounds wrong. If you said "Цей коричневий костюм не його", that would work, but it would be a different sentence ("This brown suit is not his").

Це is the subject of the sentence which is saying "Це ≠ його коричневий костюм". Shuffling the words like that makes it ungrammatical.
