Doesn't this mean Hot food? Or can it be both?
Hot food - אוכל חם
The hot food - האוכל החם
The food is hot - האוכל חם
Is the food hot - האם האוכל חם?
Interesting, so the adjective has a definite form too?
Yes. When a noun + adjective phrase is definite in Hebrew, both the noun and the adjective get a ה.
Great, that's very similar to Swedish.
That's interesting! I thought Swedish would be very similar to German and other Germanic languages, so this is a surprise to me.
Yes it has many similarities to German and English.
But The hot food - "Den varma maten"
Hot food - "varm mat"
Constant error in Duolingo answers: the question mark's at the wrong end of the sentence - the beginning instead of the end. As above and here:
האם האוכל חם?
Looking at my own comment it may be a formatting issue to do with mixing R-L Hebrew script with L-R Latin script! WhatsApp's abominable for this
The word options did not include the correct options.האם was missing from the options
It is correct with or without the word האם.
In writing, the question mark tells you that it's a question, and in speech your tone of voice should indicate that it's a question, with or without the word האם.
I put את before האוכל because I thought it was the definitive form. Why was it marked wrong?
Because את is used only before a definite direct object. There is no object in this sentence.
