Why its "I read a book" if dosnt have the word "Io" in the sentence?? Pls helpp
So, "leggo" is pronounced LAY-go and "leggete" is pronounced lay-JEH-tay?? I'm confused about the way the letter "g" is pronounced.
The consonants "g", "c", are soft in front of vowels " e", "i", but not the vowels "a, o, u". If a word calls for a hard "c" or "g", with an "e" or "i" following, the letter "h" is inserted between the consonant and the vowel.
Leggo is closer to leh-go. When the g is before e or i, it will sound as a J in Joe would.
Go, ga, gu = 'g' Gi, ge = 'j'
Same for c Co, ca, cu = 'c' ci, ce = 'ch' (Chi, che = 'c')
Is this translating in the present tense or past tense? for instance, is this saying I (have) read a book (past tense) or I read a book (present tense, but grammatically incorrect in English?)
It is present tense:"I read a book". It isn't grammatically incorrect in English, but perhaps a bit stilted. We don't usually say "I read a book" just out of nowhere, but it could in response to a question. For example, if someone asked how you pass the time waiting for a plane or something, you might say "Oh, I read a book". Or, if someone said "What do you do to learn a new skill?", you would tell them "I read a book"...
Thank you :) sorry, yes you're right in saying I read a book is grammatically correct, but not for present tense, this would be I am reading-oh the English language is confusing isn't it! That's why I asked for the distinction :)
Hahaha!!! Don't worry, that's how I feel about German, or any language besides English. "The what goes where with the who....?" And don't get me started on adjectives and articles in German....!!!!
