zofie je matka te maleho devcete. said it was wrong but I think it's right, no? reporting it
tested with žofie je matka té malého děvčete too
toho děvčete (neuter)
I see! Thank you very much! It kept correcting to holky responses(I know Duo is buggy) so I was confused.
Can I say:"Žofie je matka te divky"?
té malé dívky
Can a native Czech speaker explain the difference between saying "Žofie je matka" and "Žofie je matkou?"
They are basically the same, but 'the instrumental may also be used after the verb ‘to be’ instead of the nominative, to indicate that something or someone acts ‘as’ or occupies some role.'
(Naughton, Ch. 8.6)
