i am wondering why not "my girlfriend is handing me MY bag"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kristine466318

Because this is her bag not yours.

We speak of it mostly, as her purse, or handbag.

"My girlfriend is handing to me her bag" should be marked as a right answer.

No that's not a standard English word order.

Why not "My girlfriend is handing me her bag"


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

It's an accepted answer, it should have worked.

It doesn't take "my girlfriend is handing me her handbag".


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

Added "handbag".

Why not: My girl is handing her bag to me.

If it is someone's 'dziewczyna', we really want the word 'girlfriend'.

pocketbook should also be accepted


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

From what I see, a pocketbook is a small bag for carrying money, which is pretty unlikely to be called "torba" in Polish.


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

We carry everything in our pocketbooks, wallet, make-up, hair brushes, keys, tissues, pens, pencils, paper, etcetera. A handbag and pocketbook are the same thing.

Didn't try it, I was a perfectionist all my life and dislike my errors.

There must be a euphemism in here somewhere.
