Oh!!! what a great discovery;!
You know, you say that, but a long time ago, someone was the first to make that discovery. To be fair though, it probably wasn't a human.
Chickens have some weird ass ❤❤❤❤❤... Let's eat it
Was it the chicken? Or the egg?
Egg. Reptiles, amphibians, fish, and yes, their ancestor, the dnosaur have been laying eggs for millenia befor our tasty friend ever steped on the scene
It were dinosaurs.
Anti-vegan propaganda my dudes
My plural "Eggs are food." wasn't accepted. How would you say something like that then? I was under the impression that Japanese doesn't distinguish between singular/plural.
You're right, they're wrong. Report it.
That was my answer, it's accepted now :)
The second one should be read なまごめ.
One of my favorite tongue twisters~
EGG IS FOOD
ME EAT EGGS. EGGS GOOD.
...Why would I use this sentence?
Perhaps your friend has never heard of eggs.
Maybe not this one. But you might need to use a derivative like, "Century eggs are food."
you're damn right they are
eggs are friends
So here it accepts "egg is food", without the articles....
Would 'たまごは食べものないです' be eggs are not food? Or is it said differently?
Pretty close, but you need では, best contracted to じゃあ or じゃ with です at the end to maintain the same level of casual/colloquial speech and the politeness:
tabemono is a noun, so you need to tense the copula desu for that sentence. it should be tamago wa tabemono jyanai/jyaarimasen/dewanai/dewaarimasen
卵 kinda looks like eggs... or am I hallucinating?
dunno what kind of eggs you've been eating but mine are round
Hontou na no yo?! I thought they were rabid fruitbats! Wow, the more you know!
Why not ' Eggs are things you eat'?
Probably because 食べ物 works kinda like a compound word that forms the concept of "food", so you don't read 食べ and 物 as separate things.
Interestingly, 食物 also means food, but with the reading しょくもつ, because on'yomi.
And what's the difference between these 2 words, with and without べ？
食べ物 are things you eat, while 食物 is foodstuff.
I knew "egg" as けいらん (鶏卵）. Is it just a synonym or what's the difference?
I like how it accepted "Egg is a food".
Crabs are people! Legit or quit!
That's just, like, your opinion, man.
water is wet
Duo speaks the truth!
