  5. "Kesi dārōñar lōgra issi."

"Kesi dārōñar lōgra issi."

Translation:These are the royal ships.

June 30, 2019



"These ships are royal" wasnt accepted. Is a quirk of englishness that im not understanding? I feel that these two reaponses while different are both eqyally understandable


dārōñar should have been between lōgra and issi while kesi would be kesra and right before lōgra


"These ships are royal" would be "Kesra/keja lōgra dārōñar issi" (from 'kesa', 'kesys', 'keson’, ‘kesor’). Which is the sentence that Xenon- is suggesting in the comment above.

But the 'kesi' in this Duolingo sentence is the plural form of 'kesy' and essentially means "these” when referring to inanimate, countable things. (See here: https://wiki.dothraki.org/High_Valyrian_Vocabulary#kesy and here https://wiki.dothraki.org/High_Valyrian_Pronouns#Demonstrative_and_interrogative_pronouns)
