I'm not a native English speaker. What's the difference between pig and pork? Pork is the meat of the pig?
I wrote pork in the answer and Duolingo says I'm wrong.
I think the clue is the "un maiale" - in English you can't say "a pork" because pork is more like a quantity, so you would say just "I have pork" or "I have some pork", but you can say "a pig". I'm not sure about Italian though.
I have pork (for on the grill)
I did the same
Pork is the meat from a pig. A pig would be the animal itself.
Pork is the meat, yes, just as beef is the meet of cows.
if you click on maiale, one of the choices is "hog". I put in "you have a hog" and it was marked wrong. Why give that as an option in the lesson and then consider it incorrect?
..........And his name is Porky!
Why doesn't pork work? Plenty of words in italian seem to have an un/una before them that wouldn't be there in english.
Very confusing. Didn't know word for pork and pig were synonymous. I've got a lot to learn
in the audio, it sounds like tu eyo un maiale
the audio is terrible. I'm native and I got "Tu è un maiale". Don't repeat that sentence in Italy :)
That's what I got, too!
I thought that 'ha' meant has and now its 'hai'?
he/she/it has = ha .... you have = hai
Is it meant literally? Or is it an idiom like in German "Du hast Schwein!" = "you are a lucky fellow"?
i don't uderstand: maiale = pork, o pig = porco
