an exercise...

Postby Edvent » Sun 02.05.2006 9:29 am

Hi all!

Lately I got a new exercise to do. But I can't handle it...

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, I had to put the right particle in between the brackets:

あのレストランは、おししいです ( *particle*)  高いです。

First of all I can't figure out what おししい and 高い means...
and according to this I don't know what particle could fit in between the brackets
---------------------------------------------------------------------

would be nice if someone could help me

Hmm, are you sure that the first one shouldn't be おいしい=delicious ?

高い is read as たかい and means expensive.

I would say 「あのレストランはおいしくて、高いです」 but I don't know if that's correct given that the question may be more specific...

Yes, I wondered also about "oshishi"... well, maybe someone made a mistake there... I'll take it as "oishii"

thx for helping so far!^^

ちょっと違うと思います (I think it’s a little different)
あのレストランはおいしいですが、高いです。
This would fit in a little better, "that restaurant is delicious, but expensive. "

I'd say to put が in there, read "but". あのレストランは、おいしいですが高いです。"At that restaurant, the food is delicious but expensive."

I thought about it once more... what if it is like this:

- that restaurant is delicious >and< expansive
or
- that restaurant is delicious >but< expansive

wich one should be chosen (remembering that a particle must be put in between the brackets) and how can I translate it?

Could you explain the くて after the おいし to me? I don't know about it, maybe it has something to do with the upper question...

The -te form is used for chaining verbs and adjectives. The -te form of true (〜い) adjectives is formed by dropping い and replacing it with くて. However, you can't use it here without changing the exercise sentence.
