It feels much more natural to say "I do not eat meat". Twice now I have typed in "meat" rather than "beef". I wonder what the general word for "meat" is?
I agree, I typed in 'meat' quickly as it popped into my head instead of 'beef'.
How does "non mangio manzo" translate to "i do not eat beef" when eat word is no/not eat beef? I don't understand how I'm supposed to know that it means i do not eat beef when I'm basing everything off of each words translation and io isn't in the phrase.
You see it in the verb, mangio = I, it is redundant to write. Io mangio, tu mangi, lui/lei mangia...
