  5. "树上面有一只鸟。"


Translation:There is a bird in the tree.

December 9, 2017



Is this saying that there is a bird only on the very top of the tree, or does it mean that a bird is perched somewhere on the tree? In English we say that there is a bird in the tree if the latter is the case. On the tree would mean the bird is perched at the tip-top, or that we are talking about a Christmas ornament.


Well-pointed out! The more precise answer would be:

"There is a bird in the tree"
