I was surprised i got this right!
Why is la used here instead of lais
La is used with verbs, lais is used with everything else
because arabic language does not have a verb for "to be", you mean?
So 'is not/are not'= lais, other verbs get 'la + verb' ?
Not quite exactly? We've met lais negating عند.
I think we've seen لا negating verbs while ليس negates prepositions and possession, for example. I'm not sure what the rule is though. Can any native speaker friends help?
İt is as you have said
La/لا is used to negates verbs
While ليس is used to negates nouns
Have we learnt "know"?
BUT I WAS NEVER TOLD THE MEANING OF THESE WORDS??????
There should be 2 i but ther is only one
