What does あめだ mean? it's in an exercise in Genki 1, chapter 8.1, B, 2 in a section about conjugating adjectives. I know あめ is rain, but the context suggests a na adjective?

ame desu/ame da = it's rain (da is just the casual form of desu) ame desu ka?/ame na no? = Is it rain? ...so, da can replaced with na in this way. ganbatte ne!

Hi! It literally means "It's rain". But it's actually indicating that it's raining at the moment.

Hello Sharon. The exercise is to change the words into the negatives. The followings are some answers; ゆうめい→ゆうめいじゃない あめだ→あめじゃない いそがしい→いそがしくない かわいい→かわいくない みじかい→みじかくない しんせつだ→しんせつじゃない and so on.
