Why is niet placed before lekker and not after? How do I understand where to place niet and geen?
I believe "niet" generally directly follows the verb it modifies. So in this case, "niet" modifies "is", so we say is "niet". Just like English "is not".
I'm still so confused about this. I have no idea when to put "neit" before or after the verb/adjective
I think its similar to the use of nicht/kein in german. Geen is for nouns (there are no cats) and niet is for more abstract things (the cat is not black)
Before checking the word hint, I thought this sentence would be "The dinner is not liquor."
I guess remembering "liquor is not tasty" can be a useful mnemonic.
What is the Dutch word for liquor?
You can use "sterke drank" (strong [alcoholic] drink) or the cognate "likeur".
Evening meal is another term for dinner and should be accepted. It is in common use in England
