춥지 않잖아요


I was just reading about -잖아요 and see that it originally came from -지 않아요 but now it has its own meaning, where you are correcting someone or insisting that what you say is true.

A simple example.

Come on, it's cold.

Now, can I say this?

춥지 않잖아요.
Come on, it's not cold.

I like to test out things like this to help me learn. I think it's a completely valid sentence.
