Can't "дворец" mean castle?

November 22, 2015


Дворец is palace, castle is за́мок. Castle may be a palace (?) but they are different words.

is "дворец здесь" also a valid translation for this? If so does the word order place an emphasis on a certain word?

"дворец здесь" is more like "The palace is here". Emphasis goes to the thing being here. In the original sentence, emphasis goes to the fact that here is a palace (not just a house).

I thought the picture example asked for "castle" as the right translation at the start of the lesson

I keep hearing "toilets" for дворец...

It is being pronounced correctly now.

And to say here is the palace, would be вот дворец?

July 11, 2016


Yes, "here is the palace" would be "вот дворец". And you can translate your choice as "здесь дворец" as well.

I recently learned that полата (or something like that) is a dated word meaning just ‘palace’, a dated synonym that is only used in the plural.

How to write this in latin alphabet? Zdes' dvorec isn't regarded as a correct answer.

Would "Вот дворец" essentially mean the same?

I typed дварец as I didn't recognize the word and guessed based upon pronunciation. But instead of an "almost" it was wrong because I used the wrong word. So if дварец is a word, what does it mean?

"Дварец" is not a word, but sometimes Duo simply rejects the wrong spelling instead of writing it off as a typo.

A few minutes ago I tried translating the audio as a question, "Is there a castle here?" which was rejected. Couldn't this be a question, especially given the slightly rising tone on the audio?

(Strangely, I couldn't get the discussion link to open when I answered it "wrong" that time, but I can, now...)
