Is “this sofa is beautiful” זאת ספה היא יפָה. ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Seraph259

I think that would be... הספה הזאת (היא) יפָה

Do people sometimes misspell ספה as סופה through English interference?


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

Never seen it. Note that Hebrew differs from English both in a vowel, in a consonant (/f/ vs /p/) and in the stress. So it's not a likely misspelling.

Is there a difference between ספה and ספסל? And for that matter, is there a difference between couch and sofa?


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

ספסל - bench

ספה - sofa/couch

Couch, sofa, settee are all pretty much synonymous. I think "couch" is more common in N. America.

I put "This is a beautiful language." Seems like that should be accepted unless I'm missing something.

Why is the difference between זאת and זו?


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

No difference, except that זו is formal.
