Elle cuuisine ? mal que sa mère.
Aujourd’hui il fait ? beau qu’hier.
Souvent, au bar, l'eau coûte ? cher que le vin.
the missing word is "aussi" in all these sentences.
Thank you so much for your help.. could you tell me what the meaning
of the three word are, i'm a bit confused.. if you have time many thanks..
Aussi means ?
Autant means ?
Autant de means ?
"aussi" basically means "so...", "as...", "just as..." and goes before an adjective/adverb.
"autant" basically means "the same quantity/number/extent". It generally stands 'on its own' rather than going before an adjective/adverb.
Then, by extension "autant de..." basically means "such/the same quantity/number of...", "just as much/many...", "so much/many..." and therefore introduces a noun. So for example:
Il mange autant que moi. = He eats (just) as much as I do.
Il mange autant de viande que moi. = He eats (just) as much meat as I do.
Thank you Niel, that's great, just what i wanted..
