Translation:I carry my younger sister's bag.
I thought I saw the option "little" so I chose to say "little sister's bag" but then I found out I submitted "I carry my like sister's bag". Sometimes I wish I could read
By the way, what kind of bag does カバン refer to? Shopping bag, school bag, plastic super market bag, handbag?
I can't check your source because for some reason I can't click the link in the app, but based on wikitionary it comes from ancient Chinese. However words that come from ancient Chinese are not considered loanwords, especially if they have kanji - which カバン does have - 鞄. かばん can also be written in hiragana as was done in another exercise here. Apparently it can be written in katakana to "convey a less formal tone of conversation".
Sorry the link didn't work for you.
kaban 【カバン、鞄】 from kabas
Kaban, which means bag, came from Dutch kabas.
I think the kanji came from the Chinese, but the word itself was Dutch in origin.
Interesting, seems like there is a bit of contradiction between your source (which I managed to open now) and wikitionary. Wikitionary says the word comes from Chinese 夾板 (pinyin jiābǎn) but it doesn't seem related in meaning. Seems more likly it is a loanword, as your source says some older loanwords were given kanji too.
A handbag definitely, a plastic supermarket bag would be 袋 (fukuro). A backpack would be リュック (ryukku).
So, they're leaving out the "older" for あね but complaining if we leave out "younger" for いもうと... The only reason I left it out was because they left it out earlier....
Can カバン not mean purse, too? My mom always calls her purse her bag.
カバン can refer to an American English purse a.k.a. handbag, yes.
My answer was "I carry my little sisters bag" and I got it right but was told
"You have an extra space.
I carry my little sister s bag."
?? The correction told me I had an extra space and actually added a space that wasn't there. I assume it's my lack of apostrophe that confused it but it has never marked punctuation things before, and the corrected answer is the complete opposite of what it says my error is? Duo what are you even talking about lol
