Perhaps if 'sticla' (the bottle) or the plural version were used (sticli/sticlii)(sp?) - I am still learning myself, but "They build with bottle" seems grammatically incorrect.
If anyone can chime in to correct or confirm me it would be appreciated! Thanks!
in Romanian "sticlă" means "bottle", but also "glass". so the homonyms are different from English (and other European languages) where "glass" has those two meanings. in Romanian "pahar" means "glass (to drink out of)" but never the material "glass".
