Translation:I am a construction worker and my dad is a writer.
I wrote, "I am a construction worker while my dad is a writer," but it was not accepted. I think "while" gives a good English equivalent of the contrast shown by the Russian 'a'.
I did the same and I agree with you. I am reporting it as a feedback for moderator to consider...
After playing so many hours with the Russian Empire on Age Of Empires III, I'm finally understanding what the settler is saying when we command him to build a house.
This was a pretty funny months python sketch, where two writers are in despair over his son choosing to be a строитель
Well, in French, bodybuilding is culturisme, and in Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian, culturismo.
From English culture (development) or Latin cultura (care), I suppose. "physical culture" -> "физическая культура" -> "культурист" ?
Great answer! And in times of Socialist Yugoslavia as well: фискултура/fiskultura
I also wrote constructor instead of cons. worker, it didn´t take it. I´m reporting it.
While I would probably understand what you meant by 'constructor', it is not something one would say in British English. It's unlikely to be common in American English either (at least I've never heard anyone say it to mean 'construction worker').
What do you mean- I'm working in constructing business and here in America we all say "constructor", not "constructing worker" :))))))))))
"я" is a pronoun, and the dash is not used when the subject is a pronoun.
Ты - старый ребёнок, теоретик, а я - молодой старик и практик. Антон Павлович, знаете ли
I thought A has a contrastive nature (as opposed to I, which is complementary), so I put whereas. It was marked wrong.
Was = был (-a for feminine, -o for neuter), and it will commonly take the instrumental case (Я был строителем). "Is" is not translated/not used for most every day speech.
When I speak a big sentence wrong- I want to know which word or even which letter ж щ п ф was wrong. Thr computer knows what I am speaking wrong. The computer could train me on the wrong word, the wrong voul, the bad prenouncation.I do not know what I have done wrong!
