"These new people do not like this woman."
Translation:Ci nowi ludzie nie lubią tej kobiety.
„Ci” is plural nominative male personal of "these". The singular equivalent is „ten”.
Why is it "nowi"? Maybe its just me not paying attention to the course but Im pretty sure this is the first time I see "nowi"
Similar to previous question, „nowi” is plural nominative male personal form. The singular equivalent is „nowy”.
So "ludzie" is nominative for people and is masculine? For some reason, I though it was spelled "ludzi". "Ludzie" looks neuter gender to me but the adjectives tell me it is masculine.
Well, "ludzie" is not neuter, and it's not masculine. It's a totally irregular plural of "człowiek" and as it denotes "a group of people with at least one man" (otherwise you'd just say "kobiety"), it's masculine personal plural. And masculine personal plural has the 'unusual' forms of adjectives, which often look quite differently from the other four forms.
Well, "człowiek" vs "ludzie" is basically the same as "human" (or "man" or "person") vs "people" ;) So that is what is called "suppletion" in grammar.
"nowi" is indeed a bit unusual, the 'masculine personal' forms (those describing 'groups with at least one man') are a bit different compared to the other forms, they are more softened.
The translation that appears when you hover over "like this" is "tacy" I'm assuming this term is used in comparisons later on in the course, but should not apply here. No idea if there's a way to manually fix that.
No, there isn't really a way. Sometimes the hints just get stupid, for example in "a little cat" the phrase "a little" is treated as if it was "a bit". You just need to see that it does not make sense there.
Please explain this grammar again, why are you translating "this woman" in the singular as tej kobiety which I understand as the plural. Why isn't it "ta kobieta"
You have to realize what case is needed. Look at the verbs and/or prepositions. The verb here is "lubić" (to like), which takes Accusative. But it's also negated. Negated Accusative = Genitive (that is the only case when the case changes if negated).
"ta kobieta" is the basic, Nominative form. It is mostly used for the subject of the sentence. As we already established that you need Genitive here, it's "tej kobiety".
As for the plural thing, most feminine nouns have the following three forms identical: Nominative plural, Accusative plural, Genitive singular. But firstly, we already know it's Genitive, and secondly, "tej" is definitely not plural.
Very helpful answer. This course definitely, definitely needs an intro page to genitive.
Why is this incorrect? Te nowe ludzi nie lubią tej kobiety. Can't Te be used for these?
Not with "ludzie". There are two plurals: masculine personal and 'not masculine-personal'. The first one uses "ci", the latter uses "te".
As "people" by definition have at least one man in the group (otherwise you'd use "women/girls/etc."), it's masculine personal.
