"The dog does not write."

Translation:Pies nie pisze.

Ale on może mówić! bark bark


Why is it wrong if i write "Ten psa nie pisze"?


Pies is a subject here(since it is the dog and not someone else who is not writing) and subject of the sentence should be in nominative normally.

That said, "Ten pies nie pisze", should probably be accepted(usually it is an overkill to translate the as "ten/ta/to", but there are some rare contexts where it is OK), so if it isn't, please report it.


Everything, people will probably understand it, but i orde to say it properly you have to decline world 'pies'. This is part of polish grammar and it is utterly difficult. Ten pies. (this dog), Tego psa (this dog), Temu psu, (this dog), and for the plural is also more. As you see in English this is all this same, it is not in Polish and I think it can take more than 10 years to learn it perfectly (assuming that you live in Poland and talk with people everyday.). You have to 'feel' it how you say it. I myself if I wouldn't be Polish I will never be able to learn this language, it is just too difficult. Even now I have University degree and I make many, many mistakes in polish.


Piszę & pisze What's the difference?


ja pisze(with hook) on pisze


Mój pies nie pisze, ale pięknie szczeka w każdym języku! :)
