"She is REALLY tall!"


June 15, 2019



Where is the "she" hidden? Shouldn't that be "wochqu' ghaH!"?


The "She" is hidden in the lack of prefix, which if sufficient context exists, would render the {ghaH} unnecessary. The version with {ghaH} would, I believe, be accepted if you tried it.


Since information about the subject (who is doing the action) is included in the price (or lack thereof), adding an explicit pronoun is not required. Your sentence is also a good translation and narrows the meaning a little, since it excludes "it" as a subject. But if we were already talking about someone specific, the ghaH would be completely unnecessary and not actually clarify any.
