KOIŪ = shoyu and soy sauce

SHOYU

/ˈSHōyo͞o/

a type of Japanese soy sauce.

Why does "ke koiū keu" sometimes translate to "the extra soy sauce" and other times to just "extra soy sauce"?

Definitely confusing.

I think because in this sentence, the English needs "the" to be correct, but in the other sentence it didn't. But I would think it should still be marked correct in the other sentence.
