"Oni jsou zvířata!" -- So I thought "Oni" is for masculine plural, while "Ony" is for feminine plural and "Ona" is for neuter plural. Since zvířata is the plural of the neuter zviře, why isn't this "Ona jsou zvířata"?
The only thing I can think of is they are referring to a group of men as animals, as opposed to identifying a group of animals as animals. Is that what's happening here?
It seems a little early in the lesson to pull a "fasty" re. ONI and ONA in relationship to an implied neuter noun. I mean, I follow the logic, I simply disagree that this "trick" should happen this early in the lesson plan. Especially if you're JUST learning the Ony/Oni/Ona difference.
