ce c'est l'ai?

you don't need 2 demonstrative pronouns here, one is enough:

  • c'est l'ail
  • cet ail est bon (masculine demonstrative adjective, with a "t" before a noun starting with a vowel or a non-aspired H: cet homme)

Thank you. So is there a difference in french between, "this is garlic" and "this is 'the' garlic"?
