Interesting. I used the word "praarbaro" and got it right.

Mi uzis "arbaro praa," kun la adjektivo unua. Sed mi malpravis. Kial? Mi pensis ke oni povas movi vortojn en Esperanto, ekz., la objekto kaj la adjektivo, cxar la vortoj havas unikaj finoj.

I think, "maljunego" is just "very old", not "ancient". Just a bit little difference :/

Weird sentence. It's a bit like saying that "the conference room contained many humans and Esperantists.", don't you think? ;)

Interesting , as a native English speaker, the distinction between trees and plants is fine -- "plants" generally refers to the smaller stuff, shrubs and herbaceous undergrowth, which make up what's technically called the understory.

What's peculiar is saying the forest contains them -- it's like saying the crowd contains people.
