"is spoon tableware" does not make any sense in english. it would either be "is this spoon tableware", "are spoons tableware" or in a specifically language learning environment "is 'spoon' [the name of] a tableware". i'm honestly not understanding what this russian phrase is trying to convey, if it is a real russian phrase. but again, "is spoon tableware" is not correct in english.
The given phrase shown now (3 Jan 2016) is "Is a spoon tableware?", which makes much more sense.
It's still a very odd English sentence in my opinion. We would be far more likely to say "Is a spoon a type of tableware". Even that is a strange thing to ask!
"is a spoon cutlery" Is that ok? Marked as wrong. Tableware (the correct answer) is the same, surely.
"Cutlery", unlike "tableware" and "посуда", is limited to the forks/spoons/knives, that kind of thing, so it's not a great translation.
I have never used the word "tableware" in my life and probably haven't used of the word "cutlery" in my life. I would call knives, forks and spoons "eating utensils." I would also count them among dishes, as in the phrase "let's do the dishes". I certainly wouldn't consider skipping the knives forks and spoons because they don't count as dishes.
Посуда generally means tableware, glasses, dishes, etc. However "Utensil" means a tool associated with a task, and is rarely seen without describing what it is for unless it is implied (e.g. cooking utensil, fishing utensil, office utensil).
What a horrid pronunciation. I couldn't understand what he was saying. And then when I saw the words . . . he mispronounced лошка, saying лошКА
can we omit это in this sentence? Or is there supossed to be a jyphen after ложка. Because I don't get this sentence at all.
you always use это when you're defining something, from what i gather. hasn't failed me yet.
May we accept: "Is a spoon cookware"? I find this sentence very logic but, being not a native English speaker, I imagine it might sound weird to native speakers.
It is very weird, yes, not least because the grammar is stilted and awkward. In real-life it would be more natural to ask something like: "Do you consider spoons to be cookware?" or 'Do you think of spoons as cookware?'
Even then it sounds strange - To me "Cookware" is a word typically used by department stores to name the department that sells pots and pans and stuff like that - you wouldn't really use the word at home - unless you were asking something like "Does XYZ Shop have a cookware department?"
A spoon is a utensil :)
"Is a spoon tablewear?" is exactly what I'm typing and it keeps saying it's wrong.
