"The prices are expensive here."
Translation:Los precios son caros aquí.
Oh dear! Somebody has had a linguistic logic failure here!
We can say "The goods are expensive" or "The prices are high" but it is wrong to mix them. Does the same apply to the Spanish version?
Same question. Your word choices apply in English, but maybe not in Spanish. Any native speaker with the answer?
I just did the same thing. I think SER is used because the meaning is that the "prices are ALWAYS expensive here" implying a permanent situation which SER best describes.
