ей is in dative case. Dative case is used to express the indirect object, someone's age and some other things.
What's the difference grammatically between being an age and turning an age? For example, in French j'avais ans (I was _years) vs j'ai eu years (I turned ___years).
There are three options:
- Завтра ей будет четырнадцать. - She will be fourteen tomorrow.
- Завтра ей исполня́ется четырнадцать. (imperfective) - She will be turning fourteen tomorrow.
- Завтра ей испо́лнится четырнадцать. (perfective) - She will have turned fourteen tomorrow.
The past tense:
- Ей испо́лнилось четырнадцать. (perfective) - She turned fourteen.
(imperfective makes no sense here if I'm not mistaken)
Why is лет not used here? Is it the same as when one would say "I am fourteen" instead of "I am fourteen years old"?
UGH ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ TAKE THESE EXERCISES OUT IF YOU CAN"T EVER PRONOUCE THEM RIGHT
THE MIC EXERCISES PLEASE REMOVE THEM.
I WANT TO KEEP THE MIC EXERCISES ON BUT I DON'T WANT TO BE GIVEN EXERCISES THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET MARKED RIGHT LIKE ANY ONE WITH THESE COMPOUND NUMBERS.
The caps-lock is a little excessive, but on this one you're correct. It refuses to accept the correct pronunciation of "четырнадцать". Just report it and hopefully they will fix it eventually.
