Translation:I have a free bottle of orange juice for you!
I think I understand what you mean, but can you be clearer as for the reason the answer was not accepted? I mean: a bottle of wine can be a random bottle which has wine, and a wine bottle is a bottle intended to contain wine (but not necessarily does so right now).
So I see that the strict meaning of the sentence is not precisely the same, but shouldn't it be accepted as a common sentence which means the same in the most probable context, which to me seems to be: someone is giving you a bottle which contains orange juice ?
I ask sincerely, since I'm not an english native speaker, and I think I would never notice the difference between these two sentences if it wasn't for this discussion here...so thanks in advance!
a) I have a free orange juice bottle for you
b) I have a free bottle of orange juice for you
Sorry if I wasn't much clear. I just wanna know if these usually sound the same to english native speakers :)
In English, if you say "wine bottle" the assumption would be that there's no wine in it. If you say "orange juice bottle" it would be confusing because that's not a term that's common. Orange juice does not have a special type of bottle.
If somebody said "I have a free orange juice bottle" it would imply that it's just the bottle, but it would be strange for anybody to refer to it as "free" since it's not something that somebody would sell. And it would be strange to point out that an empty bottle is an orange juice bottle.
People would be more likely to say "I have a free bottle of orange juice" or "I have an empty orange juice bottle."
A native speaker would figure it out, particularly if the speaker had a strong accent, but if a person who had a perfect accent said "I have a free orange juice bottle for you," it would seem bizarre.
I think both English and German sentences are wrong. It should be 'a bottle of free orange juice' just like it would have been 'a bottle of freshly-squeezed orange juice'.
What is meant to be given away free here is not the bottle but the orange juice. (that the bottle comes with it free is irrelevant).
