When working with negation what is the easiest way to remember when to keep the indefinite article and not the definite article?
Example: can we do like I do not like meat nor fish since you can have some of the meat and some of the fish they would not keep the indefinite article correct?
As mentioned in the lesson, “most of the time with ni with nouns, you omit the article when it comes right after ni, unless you're using a definite article (le, la, l', les).”
- Tu aimes la musique classique ? Do you like classical music?
- Non, je n’aime ni la musique classique, ni le jazz. I like neither classical music, nor jazz music.
- Est-ce que tu manges du fromage ? Do you eat cheese?
- Non, je ne mange ni fromage, ni laitage. No, I don’t eat cheese or dairy.
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
