Which classifier does sách take? Cuốn for documents or quyển?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nghidung1

Cuốn = quyển . Just one is more commonly use than the other based on the different regions

Is quyen northern and cuon southern?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mip37

The Tips & Notes section says they are interchangeable for books.

And yet quyền is marked as wrong...

They also come from the same character, funnily enough (卷)

I used "Tôi đọc sách của tôi" which seems to be correct but is different from the above translation, would "Tôi đọc cuốn sách của mình" have been better?

Tôi should not be repeated. Instead use của mình. Same with cô ấy, et al. https://www.duolingo.com/skill/vi/Possessives/tips-and-notes

Why is quyển not accepted?..

Why can I not use "tôi đọc sách của mình”?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Leif73117

Because we are look for the qualifier

I just used "Tôi đọc sách của tôi" and it gave me a " correct"?


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

The use of mình is confusing. If i use this sentence and am talking to someone older than me can i still use minh (i.e. Em đọc cuốn sách của mình)?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nghidung1

Yes! Mình = self. In your given case. You can either use 'của em' or 'của mình' interchangeably


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jay531219

Why was this answer of mine marked correct Toi doc cuon sach cua toi?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ChrisPache13

I used " Tôi đọc quyển sách của mình " and got it correct... is that ok?


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

I used it also and was marked wrong....


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

new classifier? No explanation?


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

When are these classifiers (in this example, "cuon" and "quyen") explained? It seems "sach" was only introduced standalone. (Unless it depends on the order the lessons are completed?)

I showed this to my vietnamese tutor. She said no one speaks or writes like this.
