"I am a woman, not a man."
Translation:Eu sunt femeie, nu bărbat.
I always try to stick to accurate translations. You're statement would translate to "I am a woman, I am not a man." Although it might mean the same thing as the sentence presented, it is clearly different.... like synonyms...
I have the same problem,I wanted to write a grammatically perfect sentence and I did but it wasn't count :(
Un/o are articles ("a", "an"), unu/una are numbers ("one"). Un/unu are masculine and o/una are feminine.
"Un" can be an article( Un băiat se plimbă pe stradă.- A boy walks on the street.) or a numeral (Eu am un caiet și două cărţi.- I have got one notebook and two books.) "Una" can be just an article and just for female kind( Una dintre fete pleacă.- One of girl go.) "O" can be an article(O fată vine.- A girl is coming) or a numeral(Plătesc o carte și un caiet.- I pay a book and a notebook.).
Both ”eu sunt femeie” și ”eu sunt o femeie” are correct, but widely used is ”eu sunt femeie” because a woman cannot be ”two women” every time...
"Sunt o femeie, nu un bărbat" was accepted. Is it too weird to Romanian natives?
I put in the articles 'o' and 'un'. 1. I do not understand why putting them is wrong. 2. How would we know whether to use them or not when the 'Tips & Notes' for this topic do not tell us that?
You usually use the indefinite article when the noun has a modifier. Eu sunt o femeie deșteaptă - I am a smart woman. Eu sunt un bărbat viteaz - I am a brave man, etc. So, when there aren't any modifiers you can skip the indefinite article. Eu sunt inginer - I am an engineer; Eu sunt prost - I am stupid.
Is the indefinite article optional or must it be omitted when the noun is modified by nothing but the indefinite article? I have just completed a lesson where the verb a fi was used and the following nouns had no other modifiers, e.g. Eu sunt un barbat. This suggests to me that the omission of the indefinite article is optional. Therefore, when this sentence was translated by me into Romanian the articles I put in should have been accepted as a correct answer.
