I have a question about the use of articles here, though. In Je n'ai ni thé ni tisane, the articles were dropped. Is this a definite/indefinite thing? I.e., do they have to be included here because aimer prompts the use of the definite article? Merci beaucoup!
Yup. In a recent subject I copied/paraphrased someone's notes on this (thanks again for it, whomever you are!).
Use le/la/les/l' when talking about things you (dis)like.
• "Il préfère le café"
• "Il boit du café".
And as a reminder to me, because I always forget it, Des changes to de/d' after a negative.
• "Ils avaient deux ordinateurs."
• "Il n'avaient pas d'ordinateurs."
Hope this helps. If I've erred, please correct me! I never take offence, especially as I'm only learning.
Why is pas deleted in this sentence. In another phrase it one has to use it. So what is exactly the construction of the sentence. Likewise u use ni is it for neither nor or either or. There should be a lesson at the beginning before we atart an exercise so that it will b clear
