I'm afraid I have no idea when a question like this would be asked. Can someone contextualize this for me?
Not sure if this is right, but I was thinking it's something like "do your parents let you sleep in late?"
I picture a scenario where I have this one friend that always gets up early and I asked sarcastically "Can you get up late ?"
Perhaps when you have toddlers, and you'd really like them to sleep in?
I have asked my 3 year old this question a lot when he still wants to get up at 6:30am on a weekend morning.
You shouldn't...we can use our time to learn language instead! ;)
I sure can, thanks for asking! :)
'Could' should be acceptable
This question makes no sense :D
Said nobody ever to a teenager....
The sentence makes more sense like this "Are you able to get up late" which means - in the place where you are staying - do they let you get up late. It was not accepted by DL, though it should be. I have reported it.
This is a real question. And the answer? No not once you have kids
the question could be in an ironic sense, I think. But I don't know if Russians speak that way.
This is a strange sentence
Да вопрос или утверждение все таки
Вставать поздно= 'sleep in'?
A very unnatural sentence.
Why? I imagine this conversation:
"I work flexitime."
"That's nice. Can you get up late?"
I vould see a scenario ehere someone needs to work late at night, and a concerned friend asks "Can you get up late?" ( to make up for lost sleep)
