My cat = kucing saya = kucingku

What is kucingku like the right answers says it is?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Away54

Kucingku is informal. But it should be accepted.

why does my cat have a dog?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Away54

It's not the cat who owns the dog. Imagine Andi has a dog and Tini has a cat. Then, Tini sees her cat chasing Andi's dog.

Tini says, "Kucing saya mengejar anjingnya". -nya is back to Andi.

Is "... anjingnya dia" acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Away54

"... anjingnya dia" is not an effective statement but should be accepted.

Formally, it's incorrect.

Why the hell is it anjing dia? Why not anjingnya? What are we speaking bahasa pasar?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Away54

It's "anjingnya" now.

For "bahasa pasar": I don't know what Duolingo team want. Sometimes they are very strict with Standard form (bentuk baku) but sometimes they combine the lesson with Non-standard (tidak baku).

Perhaps it is a Tiger, not cat.
