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.**
I don’t like coffee but I like milk.
**البرنامجُ جميلٌ لکنـَّهُ طويلٌ.**
The program is beautiful but it is long.
