in this sentence: " J'ai acheté de nouveaux bols et de nouvelles assiettes " why use DE nouveaux bols.......... insteet of DES nouveaux .......
Please take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson where you will find your answer -
Using ''de / d' '' instead of 'des' in front of adjectives preceding nouns (partitive article)
It would be des bols where it not for the adjective nouveaux before the noun which requires de (adjective) bols. Bol in this case is considered to be a non-specific noun requiring an indefinite article.
Hope this helps.
