Is there a perfective form of this verb? Děkuji!
"Ten pes dohnal kočky." (past tense)
"Ten pes dohání kočky." (present tense)
"Ten pes dohoní kočky." (future tense)
Why is "this dog" incorrect?!?
Because the Czech sentence would have to be TENTO PES
So what does ten mean? I thought tamten meant "that." I'm sorry for asking stupid questions, but there are no lessons on Czech in Duolingo--only exercises.
The - ten/ta/ to
That - Tamten/Tamhleten/ten (only male gender)
THIS - Tento/Tenhle/Tenhleten/Tadyten/Tadyhleten/Tuhleten (only male gender)
So is Czech the only Slavic language that uses articles? Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, etc., don't have translations for "a/an" or "the."
No czech does not have articles. Ten ta, to ... are demonstrative pronouns. They are just the best way how to translate english articles.
va-dim, most DL sections include a Tips Notes section at the beginning. Those are the lessons, and you should read them!
Yes, I already figured it out, thanks. The Tips & Notes are invisible on the mobile site until I turn the phone sideways, then they show.
Oh my god, you've changed my life.
I put "That dog is chasing the cats" Why is that wrong?
I think that the Czech contributors to this course want to use ty kočky for "the cats."
Is there a plural form for "honi"? What would be "the dogs are chasing cats"?
The third-person plural form is also honí. See https://cs.wiktionary.org/wiki/honit. In your suggested sentence, the subject would change to ti psi.
