Why is 'Nay' not acceptable here?

I thought it is supposed to be "táo ép", as in "chanh ép, cam ép" and so on

i think both are acceptable. "Nước ép" is just more specific

  • nước = water
  • chanh = lemon
  • ép = press together or squeeze
  • nước chanh = lemon water = lemonade
  • nước ép = pressed/squeezed water = juice
  • chanh ép = pressed/squeezed lemon
  • nước chanh ép = pressed/squeezed lemon water
  • nước ép chanh = lemon juice

nước would specify that it's the liquid/juice and not the actual pressed lemon.

I wrote 'Day la cai nuoc ep tao'. Why is there no classifier used here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NNUGLES

This one was tricky. Since the original sentence included "the", you'd think that you should include a classifier. I just didn't because it sounded funny in my head. The me, the original sentence should've been:

"This is apple juice"

It's entirely possible that I just don't understand the Vietnamese language well enough. For now, I'm just going to mentally chalk this one up as the original statement being faulty or deceptive.
