How is someone in more than one bed? Is it normal to pluralize beds in Czech?

October 8, 2017


It's not giving me PROČ JSI V NAŠÍCH POSTELÍCH, so presumably no one is in more than one bed

I think this one was the one 7 dwarfs asked Snow White

or staying with czech, "tady všude seděl."

Erik, the question here is addressed to more than one person (that is, "you" is plural). More than one person can be in more than one bed -- both in English and in Czech.

thank you for thinking :-) lingotworthy.

I still don't completely understand in which situation to use "V" and when to use "Ve". Does it have to do with the softness of the word afterwards?

This is not completely simple, search for Czech Prepositional Vocalization (a scientific article https://www.jstor.org/stable/pdf/4212620.pdf ). In Czech it is in http://prirucka.ujc.cas.cz/?id=770 . Consult the recommended textbooks (Tahal and Noughton - both available online).

So sorry I reported my sentence and now I know I was wrong. I put "jsi" instead of "jste" which of course is the only solution... Duolingo is missing a "unreport my answer" button ;)

Just let it be. It takes much more time to check discussion comments like this one than to dismiss a wrong report.
