"Triclinium pavimentum habet."

Translation:The dining room has a floor.

The answer should be "The dining room has a floor" but I cannot report it as there was not an option for "The translation is wrong."

Agree. That sounds more natural in English

Or it could be the other way around: "The floor has a dining room" ;)

Indeed, both are neuter words, both could be either nominative or accusative.

It must be a meeting of the rooms in the house, and dining room is talking now. :-P

Is it just me, or does this course have an unusually large number of "new" words that are not highlighted as such? I'm never sure whether I've forgotten a word or not.

I don't think the course creators have finished all the tips and notes. They seem to end at Food. Up to that point, they're quite good, I think.

This sentence is extremely awkward.

I'm no expert but I think at the time having an actual pavement was expensive and something only rich people would be able to afford. For what I can remember from the historical sites I have visited, probably most floors were made of rammed earth... or wood, at best (especially if the building had more than one floor).
