Why is "saya merasa sedikit sakit" not acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jan320480

saya merasa agak sakit - should be accepted

Could anyone explain why "agak" should precede "tidak"? I thought that "Saya tidak agak sehat" would be also acceptable, but my answer was rejected...

I got answers from native speakers. You cannot swap the order of words. "Agak" should proceed "tidak" in this sentence. https://hinative.com/questions/18183332

And as many of native speakers explain, using "agak" in this sentence is unnatural from their viewpoints. As we learned in the previous lesson, "kurang" (less, minus) is more natural than "agak".
