"The elephants are not light."
Translation:De olifanten zijn niet licht.
"Niet" or "Geen" never can be the last word of sentence. Always one of them before the adjetive.
I am having trouble understanding when to add the extra "e" to adjectives like licht. Any tips would be very helpful. Thanks in advance
I don't think so. Geen are only used to negate a noun. Example, 'hij eet geen apple'. Usually, geen replaces articles de/het. In this case, de is the article for apple. (de appel). In order to say, he doesn't eat an apple, you replace de with geen.
I do not think "geen" can replace "de" or "het", but it replaces "een" or any number. You would use "niet" if "de"or "het" were used.
I notice my mistake there. 'Een' is replaced not 'de/het'. Thanks for clearing it up
I don't fully understand the difference between geen and niet and when/how to use them. Also, what's the difference between niet placed in a sentence and at the end of one?
