62. The Conjunction  لکنَّ

The Conjunction  لکنَّ is usually followed by a noun or a pronoun suffix in the accusative case. On the other hand, لکنْ tolerates the use of verbs after it. Both are used to make compound sentences and mean "but."

**لا أحبُّ القهوةَ لکنْ أحِبُّ الحليبَ.**

**البرنامجُ جميلٌ لکنـَّهُ طويلٌ.**

The program is beautiful but it is long.
