Have you any pears? is also ok in England. When i offered DL this it wanted to insist on the addition of "got".
My sympathy; I've more or less given up trying to persuade Duo to accept "Have you".
it shouldn't be accepted; "do you have any pear" is wrong in most contexts - eg shopping for fruit; it is possibly acceptable in the context of asking to be served from an array of dishes for a fruit salad - "do you have any apple, and I'll have some pear as well" - but it still sounds odd.
Just sounds wrong to this Englishman, "any beef" but not "any pear" (it would require that the pears have lost their individuality... You could say "have you got a pear" if that is what you mean.
It's not English. "any" takes a plural noun, so unless you're referring to pear as a foodstuff (which I doubt) it doesn't work.
again if the pears have lost their individuality this works - eg pear puree or pear juice, both rare in England - what about the states? Would this be something is asking for in Romania?
Any idea as to why pear is singular instead of plural? Shouldn't it be 'pere' instead of 'pară'?
As the others have noted, English uses plural, but Romanian has both cases. If you refer to "at least one" you use singular "vreo pară / vreun măr”. If you refer to ”some” you use plural ”ceva pere/ ceva mere”
I thought perhaps "niste" meant "some"; that use of "ceva" as "some" is new to this neophyte. Where does "niste" enter the picture (Oh, the "s" does have that diacritic/mark.)
