Wait, what is the difference between 'leven' and 'wonen' anyway?
"wonen" is to live in a place.
"leven" is to be alive.
Arguably this sentence should be "de oude man woont alleen." But with leven it suggests that he is lonely.
Why is woont wrong here? / De oude maan woont alleen /
That should be accepted.
Same. De oude maan woont alleen
What's the difference between alleen and eenzaam?
I think "alleen" means "alone, on your own" and "eenzam" means "lonely".
Need a native speaker to confirm though.
