Am I lazy if I say "Is hen a bird"? It wasn't accepted.
Both "a" and "the" are accepted. But "Is hen a bird" sounds like you're asking if someone whose name is Hen is a bird... :-)
"Is hen a bird?", "Is wolf a predator?" sound very natural in English without an article.
perhaps to some ESL speakers they do.
And to a lot of native English speakers (as the Google testifies).
Can this word order can only mean "Is a hen a bird," and not the other way around? I would assume this is the case, but wanted to ask.
to make sense this is the only possible order. But then, it is the same in English for once.
Prosim, lze: Does is a hen a bird?
