Translation:Drunk parrots are the worst animals.
This has been a truly enriching course thanks to its constant parrot references which seem to get wilder as I near the end of crown level 1. I imagine a Rome filled with filthy, destructive and dangerous parrots that are continually inebriated as I go along.
After encountering so many sentences about drunk parrots, I HAVE to know if this is true. Is this coming from personal experience or what?
There's a bird in New Zealand called the kererū (commonly "wood pigeon" among older Pākehā/European generations who struggle with Māori words) that likes to binge on certain berries in summer, when they're overripe and starting to ferment. Basically, kererū are fat, clumsy birds that get very drunk and fall out of trees
I did see a pet shop owner who used to give a big, beautiful macaw a little thimble of rum every once in awhile. It was so cute to see him take it and drink it.
"Drunk parrots are worst animals" was marked incorrect and corrected to "The drunk parrots are the worst animals." Do you need both the "the" ?
In order for it to make sense, you do need "the worst animals." You were corrected to having "the" twice because that is probably the default or most preferred solution. You don't necessarily need "the" at the beginning, however.
I am English and I had not thought of this before. I think you must say "Drunk parrots are the worst animals" but you may say, "Drunk parrots are worse animals."
Thanks for answering. So , first the is not necessary but the second one is ?
You don't need the first "the", but you do need the second one, because your English is incorrect without it.
