| Notes: |
|Because this is "...nai bakari ka", the first clause must be translated in the negative, not the affirmative. "Not only is it not attractive, it isn't even safe." "Not only is it not expensive, (but) it doesn't take up much space, either!" A close relative is "dake de naku," which tends to have the first clause in the affirmative.|| |
