Should "The owl eats THE snake." not also be acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ErikRed1

"The owl eats a snake" "The owl eats the snake" "The owl eats snakes" "An owl..."

All should be accepted

    I'm not sure but all the sentences you wrote have different meanings so it shouldn't be acceptable

    I came here to ask the same question :(


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

    Yes I think so :)

    Could "the owl eats snake" also work as a translation? Basically a general statement that one of the foods the owl eats is snake?


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

    Yes that sounds right to me, well I don't know whether owls actually do eat snake, but I think the translation works :)

    I have just had 'The owl eats snake' being marked wrong. As an English sentence I see no issues. I'll report that it should be accepted.

    Wouldn't the Korean need to say "snake meat" in order for your translation to work? 뱀고기 or something like that?

    Can this also be read as "owls eat snakes"?


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

    Yes, that is exactly what I put and it was accepted. It could be owl/owls and snake/snakes depending on context. I don't know why your perfectly valid question was downvoted, I have upvoted you :)
