  5. "Mom has a loud voice."

"Mom has a loud voice."

Translation:У мамы громкий голос.

November 12, 2015



Why is "У мамы есть громкий голос." an incorrect solution? Is using "есть" only the way to say someone has something when that something is a physical object?

    Using «есть» would emphasise the fact that a mom has voice, which should be pretty obvious anyway (unless sheʼs actually a mermaid or something).

    haha... unless she's a mermaid :D

    Thanks for the explanation too of course :)


    Thank you, that makes sense.
