Why isn't it "des" grands chiens?
Indefinite article "des" becomes "de" in front of adjectives.
thank you very much
I was so confused. Thank you.
what is wrong with 'tu as de grands chiens'? It marked it as incorrect, but why?
Because they won't tell you they want it in plural you, not singular. I think they should accept and fix the sentence like they do when you have a typo
"Tu as de grands chiens" is not accepted? Why?
Would vous avez des chiens grandes be correct? I intuitively want to put the adjective after the noun with french...
BANGS - these types of adjectives come before the noun.
Thank you Lrtward. That is very helpful.
Lrtward, you are a beautiful human being. Thank you for this. I had puzzled for so long over this.
Grand is one of those adjective exceptions that is often placed before the noun
Why not Tu as?
Grammatically there's nothing wrong. It's just Duo that wants you to use vous avez version.
Indeed why is it not des?
"des" changes to "de" when followed by an adjective.
So large in French is not the equivalent of large in English?
When we use "de" exactly? I am confused
It is already mentioned. But you always need to put an article in french. De instead of des is because you got an adj. That follows
why is it wrong to say "tu as de grands chiens"?
