Singular article with plural adjective + noun?
I've run into a few sentences that use a singluar "de" before a plural adjective + noun. Like, "Elle a de grands meubles." Why is it de in this case and not "des"?
Using le, la, les, du, de la, de, des I've read through the relevant lessons, but I'm still not clear on a few points: If want to say "He likes cheese" do I say "Il aime le fromage" ? What about the negative: "He doesn't like cheese" is it "Il n'aime pas le fromage" ? Why is "I adore cucumbers" "J'adore les concombres" but "I eat apples" "je mange des pommes" ? What about with "avoir peur" is it "il a peur des chiens" ? In the negative would it be "il n'a pas peur de chien". ?
