"Is the house there?"
I really love the simplicity of the Russian language. They don't mess around with extra, fancy words; straight to the point.
I think i agree but sometimes i twnd to forget that they dont used words such as "is".
African American English dialect does the same: "you crazy", versus "you are crazy", but then people think they're uneducated when its just a dialectal variance.
Это до́м там — that's a house there.
Это до́м там? — is there a house there?
To be fair, Duolingo strips all punctuation from your answers.
It can also depend on intonation. If you emphasise the word ДОМ, там ДОМ? then indeed you get "Is it a house over there?" but if you emphasise the word ТАМ, ТАМ дом? Then it would mean "Is the house there?" (just as with the other word order).
In Russian, the word order can often be changed if proper intonations are used. As you have no intonations in writing then the word order becomes more important.
Cause «дом» is masculine. "This house" — «этот дом» "This is a house" — «это дом»
First of all, you've spelt «где» (gde) as «гдз» (gdz).
«Где находится дом?» is a fine, albeit somewhat formal way of saying "Where is the house?", but your word order is unnatural without context.
However, the question is not where the house is, but rather if the house is "there".
If you insist on using «находиться», you can ask «Дом находится там?», but honestly I wouldn't recommend that.
I think the only application of the sentence дом там is in alphabets learning!! As I wonder how many times I use or I hear "is the house there? " in the daily conversation. I mean it's not a common sentence
Say you're speaking with a house retailer.
"I'm going to Montana this weekend."
"Oh, is the house (that you are seeing) there?"
"Oh, no, just a vacation."
Albeit kind of a stretch.
If you cant follow this link look up online "how to set keyboard on phone"
Or go to settings and click keyboard then click Russian.
Search on the internet to find out how can you apply the Russian keyboard on your device If you use the android phones, i os, computers..is different
It's actually really easy to get a Russian keyboard, I don't even remember why I asked, it was posted 2 years ago.
why we can't use туда instead of там ? I am a beginner so I can't understand if there is any difference.
I'm confused. This material didn't show up in the first time I did this lesson, but I'm getting new material in the review. What's gives?
It expands your knowledge and vocabulary. As far as I know Duolingo shows in yellow words you may not know yet plus you can tap on it and see the meaning in case you're not sure of.
Is the house there? Это дом там? Instead it says: Этот дом там. The app never used this word этот for me, what is it mean? Это was okay for all my previous sentence where it was asked "Is the [something/somebody] there?"
I am unable to access a Russian keyboard on some of the devices I use. It is not always possible for me to input in Russian.
I love duolingo, however, I would find it more beneficial if we could "re-visit" our past exams. (Every language)
Do you mean "Это дом там?" or maybe "этот дом там"?
If you say "дом там", I can understand it as "is THE house there"? By context, about the house that we are speaking about. If we are not speaking about any house, I will ask you "какой дом?" (What house are you telling about?)
If you say "этот дом там", I can understand it as "is THIS house there"? About the house that we are speaking about.
If you say "это дом там" (with the accent on "дом"), I can understand it as "is there a house?", "Do I see a house" (or may be it is just a barn or a bus standing)
There isn't an "is" in the sentence because Russian doesn't normally use the verb for be in the present tense.
Дом там? (dom tam) Is the house there?
It literally translates to "House there?".
I can't write Russian on my keyboard, does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!
