Well, looks like I've been upgraded from a "mouche" at least.
Et je mange un homme.
Yes you are, Duolingo. Yes you are.
I have to wonder what the person who formulated these sentences thought about the pratical use this one would have for those of us who are not lions.
If I want to say I'm lion, then I will. Now I can in French, too.
maybe, to be born under the sign of Leo? :)
Oh, you're right, I guess it makes more sense, then. As we're talking about animals and not about zodiacal signs, I didn't even think about this possibility.
Je suis à Lyon :-)
Given the obvious inaccuracy of such a statement being spoken by a human isn't this more likely to be interpreted as "I am following a lion"?
This is possible but being a lion can be the description of your costume, which might be even more probable than following a lion.
Just for personal reference, is this also the way to say "I am a Leo" in reference to zodiac signs? Because I'm a Leo and want to know if it's right. In Spanish and other languages, Lion and "Leo" are the same word.
yes they're the same word in french as well
Yes, I'm pretty sure that's true, but if they were talking about zodiac signs, then why would it appear in 'animals'? Strange.
Apparently "I am following a lion" works as well. That might be more useful than "I am a lion"
That would be odd, considering they're two very different statements.
Indeed both translations are valid but you can be a lion if you were born between July 22nd and August 22nd, or if you are disguised as one.
Silly duo, you are an owl and not a lion.
could this also be je suis une lion? or is lion always masculine?
A female lion is "une lionne".
I said "i am a lion" but corrected me to "i follow a lion" :/
Perhaps it can also be interpreted as follow?
Yes it does.
I am FOLLOWING a lion? What? How is that correct?
The verb "suivre" has one conjugation in common with the verb "être": je suis.
Être: je suis, tu es, il/elle/on est, nous sommes, vous êtes, ils/elles sont
Suivre: je suis, tu suis, il/elle/on suit, nous suivons, vous suivez, ils/elles suivent.
Oh, my. Context wins the day again!
