There really missed an opportunity by not teaching us how to say "There are four lights!"
I admit I've had the same thought. You could say 「ライトが四つあります。」 though it looks like in the Japanese translation of that episode Picard actually say 「ライトは四つだ！」
What the pronounciation of 四つ
I don't get why adding つ to the end of numbers changes their pronunciation.
Can someone explain why the character 「が」 is pronounced the way it is here? Or is it just the audio for this question being weird?
I think it is just being said quickly. It does sound a bit weird.
"You used the wrong word.
He's 4 tables."
Excuse me what?
Ah, fun with the automatic contraction system. "He has four tables" is an accepted answer. Unfortunately, the system can't distinguish between when "he has" can be contracted to "he's" (i.e. when it's an auxiliary verb) and when it can't, like here.
What is the difference between saying "テーブルが四つあります" and "四つのテーブルがあります"?
The dudley boyz were here
There is no 'tap' option for 'four'.
I tried to report but there was no selection for 'missing word'.
IMO I think it could be translated: "I count 4 tables"
