호박 is also generally "squash," and not only "pumpkin".

Pumpkin falls from the table.

Ava506452 What a difference what has fallen off the table? The most important is to learn a certain sentence pattern. Later you can place there a glass or a jug or anything else and you will know how to express that something has fallen off the table or shelf.... Think this way, do not take things so seriously and simply enjoy the app :-)

How do we know if we are supposed to say "A pumpkin" or "the pumpkin"? Shouldn't both be accepted or is there a rule?

I said "The pumpkin falls off of the table" and now I'm questioning my ability to speak English (native speaker here!).

It does fall off the table now and then, just for fun.

Can someone explain the pronunciation of this word?

Once again, said it the same exact way both times; got marked wrong once, correct once.

호박이 떨어지는 거지 호박은 떨어지다는 여기서 어색한데

Why is "Pumpkins fall on the table" marked wrong? Can't the 은 be indicated as "A/The pumpkin" and "pumpkins"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeraldMath4

Yes, but your translation doesn't reflect the fact that the pumpkins started out on the table and ended up off of it.

What is the difference between falling off and falling down from the table (marked wrong)?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeraldMath4

Interesting question. Trying to think of when one might say "fell down from," my first thought is that what fell was probably trying to climb up whatever. A pumpkin wouldn't do that, of coiurse.
