isn't the correct way to say it in English
Which is why it's marked wrong.
Please translate natural German into natural English. By which I mean 21st-century standard written English.
As soon as you have to use the word "technically", you've already lost.
"Thou likest my mother not" might be fine for King James or for Shakespeare, but it's not the kind of English anyone spontaneously uses nowadays. So don't expect it to get accepted.
Also, allowing direct translations may mislead users into thinking they understand the meaning of a German sentence when they do not.
For example, "I had my car repaired" and "I had repaired my car" mean very different things, and only the second of those is a correct translation of Ich hatte mein Auto repariert. Allowing the first one (which matches the German word order but has a completely different meaning) as a translation would do learners a disservice.
Okay, I understand that sometimes it can change the meaning of the sentence, but when it doesn't, what harm is there in learning specifically what the words are, in order? At least for me, that is helpful for learning the correct syntax. (Also, I've "already lost" what? Is this a duel or something? I'm just trying to study a language lol)
