What is wrong with saying "my lonely shoe"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/yoogun143

I think that if it is " my lonely shoe",the translation will be " ma chassure seule "

If it can be' my only shoe', why cant it be 'my only boot?''


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Merriam-Webster

That would be "mon seul botte", I believe, instead.

Why is wrong "my shoe only"?


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

"My shoe only" is not a natural English construction. It is only seen in poetic or lyric construction and not in common speech.

why my only shoe? how about my shoe only?

My sole shoe should also be accepted. Sole means only in English and has the same root as seule.
