War is what happens when language fails.
Why "What is the use of spelling knowledge in war?" is incorrect?
I reported some seemingly missing sentences but maybe I was wrong. Could you please clarify:
Do those sentences have different meanings:
'K čemu je ...?' – 'What use is ...?'
'K čemu je dobré …? – 'What is … good for?'
Are these constructions not interchangeable?
This is the same in both languagess.
What is it for? What is it good for?
K čemu to je? K čemu je to dobré?
The meaning is very similar but it is a digferent sentence.
I didn' t see an answer to this person's question and I would also like to know. if K cemu has different meanings.
Well I can't say you don't have a point here, but still...
What about: "What is the use of knowledge of spelling in war?"
Literally that is "Jaké je využití pravopisu ve válce?" You are using "the use" as a noun here and Czech does have an equivalent noun. However, the original sentence is a bit different.
Hmm... should I delete those versions? (I think my recent changes only made the articles optional; the "what is the use" group may have already been there.)
"What is the use of knowledge of spelling in war?" is accepted.
