"O cachorro corta o bife."

Translation:The dog cuts the steak.

I know bife translates as steak on duolingo, but it also translates as "beef", obviously. And I dont know if this phrase is meant to be humorous or not, but if it is, wouldn't "beef" be the more relevant translation?

Beef is carne de vaca. Bife refers to a beef steak, but not beef on its own.

Why is "The dog cut the steak" wrong??

September 2, 2018


bc "cut" in your sentence would be past tense. LMK if you need more explanation. : )

idk if you typed "g o d" in your attempt at the translation, but u typed "g o d" in your post. that might be the issue. : )

cut V.S. cuts... why is cut wrong?

"Cut" is past tense and "Cuts" is present tense.

This might seem petty but my question is:- How do I determine: "it was cut", "is being cut" or * "will be cut"
