  5. "This is a duck."

"This is a duck."

Translation:Seo tunnag.

December 4, 2019



Why is "This duck" incorrect?


because seo at the start of the sentence like this is acting as an identifier. Grammatically there is an assumed 'S e which is not there either in speech or writing. Therefore, this phrase says "this is a duck".

This duck would be an tunnag seo


By the way, I saw you asked a number of questions on these sentences last night. I'm not sure if you've seen them, but I've responded to the ones I've seen.
