Hi, do you want to speak vietnamese? :D I'm Vietnamese and I would love to improve my English. Thank you!
I wrote one fish a mug. Which should also be correct. But it says it isnt. In the apps defense. A fish a mug is more correct. But. I was testing the water
It should be : One fish and One mug the translation. Một is number "one" in vietnamese. "Cái" is like an "article" for the objects. You can say : Cái bàn (a table), cái xe ôtô (a car), etc.
Hope it helps :)
Do classifiers imply the singular form? I mean, does saying "con cá" imply that I'm talking about one fish or fish in general? Or both?
Hello, classifiers helps to classify nouns in general regarding their type: like object (cái), fruit (quả), nationality (người), language (tiếng),etc. It doesn't imply a specific noun, so if you say : con cá ou cá it means fish in general, if you add the "demonstrative pronoun" as : này (this), kia (that), this implies one fish specific that you're talking about. Hope it helps :)
What kind of sentances do they have... Only reason im doing this is cause my friend is from Vietnam soo
