"동물은 물건이 아닙니다."
Translation:An animal is not a thing.
is the object of the adjective 이다 in a affirmative sentence always written as one word with 이다? and the object of the verb 아니다 in a negative sentence has the "object" particle 이/가 and is not attached to 아니다?
음식 and 입니다 are written together.
동물은 물건이 아닙니다.
물건 has 이 attached to it and formes two words with 아닙니다.
Neisann, maybe your transliteration is not in the spirit of Duolingo, but I find it extremely helpful - having worked through the previous lessons I am still not at all at ease with the Korean characters; a spelling out in western characters helps me to key into the Korean with greater understanding; maybe Duo should revise its policy on not giving transliteration.
