|jrebong||What is the difference between the two?|
1. 壊れかねない -
2. 壊れるに決まっている -
The meaning overlaps to a degree (Well, maybe one is stronger than the other)
|jayati||kanenai has a nuance of capability but kimatteru is definite...|
kanenai is -might break (coz it is not strong or is old) if something is done
kimatteru is-will definitly break coz it is a second hand material(it must have been used a lot)
thats wat i feel.Pls correct me if am wrong.
