"Itt postásokat vagy eladókat látsz?"
Translation:Do you see postal workers or salespeople here?
I must say that to have three consecutive accusative lessons is quite BORING! Wouldn't be better to improve the interest by mixing a little bit as done in other languages...?
Can we get "postások" to mean "mailmen" as well as "postmen" already? The former is chiefly American, the latter chiefly British - and living in America, I've never actually heard anyone use the latter. (And yes, I am reporting these instances as they appear)
And also, could we get a gender-neutral equivalent? "Mail carrier"! Or perhaps "postal worker" (though the latter also extends to people working behind a desk in the post office, which I'm not sure postas does).
Mailmen, while it should be accepted, sounds dated to me.
These words are somewhat outmoded in Canadian English - and I suspect in other English-speaking countries as well. I translated the phrase using gender-neutral words and it was rejected. What do others think of -- "Do you see letter carriers or salespersons here?" as a correct, alternate formulation?
The word order for that one sounds very awkward in English, and I don't think it's a good translation. You should really have the "Do you see" at the front of the sentence.
