Why is it not: "У него ест собаки?"
Isn't Genetive where собака --> собаки?
After some more exercises it seems that the pattern is: У (него/её) есть + infinitive of the noun.
I have the same question
Where does the "н" in "него" come from again? I read it somewhere before, but forgot. To me as a beginner "его" seems enough, but obviously I am wrong.
The н is added when the preceeding letter is a vowel
I was under the impression that "него" was used when saying "does not", and "его" when solely saying "does". Now i'm confused.
Что is the difference between: собака и пёс?
пёс is frequently encountered in Russian literature, but it has an old-fashioned and somewhat pejorative ring to it, much like hound or cur in English. The more usual word is соба́ка (sobáka).
duolingo's a nazi when it comes to getting every single letter right
