How am I supposed to know what "ori" means? It hasn't been introduced anywhere.
They use to make us fail some exercises... that's a good way to remember and learn...
What is the difference in usage between sau and ori?
Both of them have the same meaning in English. See it here>>> http://www.wordreference.com/roen/ori
Is one like or, while the other is like nor ?
'sau' and 'ori' is the same thing - or in english
Ori is more frequently used between two clauses, and sau between two words. That's what a native romanian tells me. So sau would be more idiomatic in the present sentence.
Native here : sau and ori mean the same thing but we usually use sau
Ok, so "ori" and "sau" can be used indistinctly? Thank you in advance :)
Apa is not pronunced well
How is bei verbally pronounced? It sounds like a russian da but im not sure....
The word bei is not in this exercise but it sounds like English "bay".
Why is "the man" barbatul while "the woman" is simply femeia? Shouldn't "ul" be added on to woman as well?
femeia is definite. Otherwise it would be femeie.
The difference is that barbatul is a masculine word, and femeia is a feminine word. -ul is not added to the feminine words. Barbat - barbatul. Femeie - femeia.
Why "the tea" is "ceaiul" while "the water" is only "apa"? Tea = ceai and the tea = ceaiul. And for water : water = apa and the water = apa too?? Is there a logic?
apă is 'water' and apa is 'the water',
apă is feminine and ceai is masculine
why is "the tea" = ceaiul but "the water" is still just "apa" and not something like "apul" or whatever...:)
I was about to ask the same :s I'm really confused about this one
because ceai is masculine and apă is feminine
How do you say "water" and how do you say "the water"? I thought the translation could be "Femeia nu bea ceaiul sau apale"
apă is 'water' and apa is 'the water'
Ori and sau mean exactly the same thing, but sau is more formal.
The woman does not drink the tea NOR the water
