What about 'Miski tämä kieli kaunis on?'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AmelieinBelfast

Eikö ole 'miksi on tämä kieli kaunis' hyvä myös?

Well, technically it's correct and you get understood, but it's slightly awkward and doesn't sound natural.

the confusing thing though is that this form was given in a previous example in this lesson :(

    Kyllä se on oikein mutta siksi on beetaversio. It's so riddled with errors

    So when it comes to why questions You can just conveniently slap "Miksi" at the beginning of the statement? I love it.

    Shouldn't it be "kaunis on" not "on kaunis" or am I missing something?

    This is completely inconsistent, like much of Duolingo.
