  5. "Det er en del af en lampe."

"Det er en del af en lampe."

Translation:That is a part of a lamp.

April 15, 2019



Why is "it" not acceptable?


It is!
We do not have different words for "that" and "it". Both are "det".
Instead it all lies in the stress.
With stress it means "that".
Without stress it means "it".
In the audio there is no stress on "det" so the proper translation would actually be: "It is a part of a lamp".

But if you only have it in text, both translation are fine.


It should be. Ofcourse there is a variation in "that" or "it" but using "it" is perfectly ok
