では & ありません

Been having trouble picking up what the difference is.


Also when does く Get added to the end? After nouns with い?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

では and ありません should be used in a sentence together meaning "not~." For instance,

あのひとは ジョンさん(noun) では ありません。(That person is not John.)

あまり げんき(na-adjective) では ありません。 (I'm not very cheerful today.)


And, a noun doesn't get  く, but a i-adjective gets く instead of い when it's used in negative.  For example,

おいし → おいしありません (formal), おいしない (casual)

Hope this helps,
