For negative sentences. Is it Elle n'aime pas les jupes or Elle n'aime pas des jupes? Is there a rule for using les/des for negatives?

  • French -

    Bonsoir, Yan! Again it depends upon whether or which to say "she doesn't like THE skirts" or "She doesn't like skirts." The rule is "if you want the DEFINITE article you have certain skirts in mind. If you use the PARTITIVE it's like saying "some, any, not any, etc."

    And the usual rule is "pas de" so the 2nd would be "Elle n'aime pas de jupes." With the negative just memorize "pas de" and/or "pas d'."
