The Particle لا to Express an Additional Characteristic

قوشۇمچە بىر ئالاھىدىلىكنى بىلدۈرىدىغان «لا» يۈكلىمىسى

When placed after the converb-perfective and followed by قالماي, the addition of لا may be used to create a structure analogous to the English "not only... but also...".

Not only are there good stores at the market, but there are good restaurants as well.
.بازاردا ياخشى دۇكانلار بولۇپلا قالماي، ياخشى ئاشخانىلارمۇ بار

Not only is this hat in style, but it's really warm as well.
.بۇ قۇلاقچا مودا بولۇپلا قالماي، يەنە ناھايىتى ئىسسىق
