Is любите singular or plural? How can I know that?
Любите is plural or polite singular. Just see context.
So I take it that "проте" also can mean "but".
Проте is however, along with втім, однак.
I accept your translation but I assumed you were asking me to say that "I" liked bread but not honey. I agree that the correct word for "but" in this sentence is "ale"
Gotcha. Makes sense ;)
I'm suddenly confused about when to use ти and ви. Singular and plural for you or is one more formal?
Ви is plural you and singular polite form (like German Sie, italian Lei). Ти is always informal singular you.
How does one know if You is Ти or Bи?
English does not distinguish them, therefore you just conclude it from the context. Note that Ви is widely used to address single person, if s/he is not your friend or mate or close relative whom you may say ти.
"і" also means "but"?
"і" never means "but". "A" can cometimes, but not "i"
I was given the Ukrainian version of this sentence with "i" instead of "але". Some sort of glitch?
That is my question also
Just report as hard as you can! :)
how about та?
Та can mean either "and" or "but"
Thank you! Is а the same as та then? I'm so confused there are so many and's and but's.
No...i means and...it should be a
Why "но" is not good for "but"?
Because there is no such word in Ukrainian.
