Why isn't "Měli jsme žizeň včera" correct?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tatka_

The sentence not sound natural. Could be "Měli jsme včera žízeň" or "Žízeň jsme měli včera"

Why i cant just use "včera měli žízeň"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VladaFu

That would be the third person (they), the jsme makes it the first person (we).

Včera měli jsme žízeň. Is definitely wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VladaFu

Yes, jsme as a past tense auxiliary must be in the second position.

My jsme měli včera žízeň. ( neuznává)

New audio, new nightmare fuel at the end of this clip.

Please be specific, I do not hear any nightmare. Be aware that the issue of the new audio is not finalized yet. Since then it is not worth investigating individual sentences, plesse direct your feedback to https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/38582629
