So we've had Lord of the Rings, Monty Python and now Star Wars, I wish all language courses were that geeky ;)

There was The Witcher, too! :D


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

I think I missed them, what were the references?


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

About the groom being a hedgehog. (Sulhanen on siili.)

Wow, which one was from LotR? Seems like I've missed it :(

Harmaa velho kävelee metsässä. Vai onko hän valkoinen velho?

Also several videogames. Like the Supermario brothers.

'That is no moon' sounds odd...

It's a quote from star wars :)

"That is no moon" is not as common as"That is not a moon", but it is a valid sentence. I think "That is no moon" implies that it is something dangerous.

And the Death Star was dangerous.

Sounds poetic/slang-ish

Se on ansa!

Cute Star Wars reference.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RobEdwards512061

It's a space station.

"Tuo on avaruusasema" ?

Is "That is not the moon." really wrong? :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Quinn617320

No it isn't. It's just not a possible answer yet.


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

It's not a satellite.

Kuuta ei ole. Miksi ei käytetä partitiivi?


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

Kuuta ei ole = there is no moon


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Demian321988

Why is this not partitive? I thought negative was usually partitive


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

Just with specific sentence structures, this not being one of them.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nicoletta236013

I think it should be "that is not the moon". Duo translation does not make any sense.

It is the Star wars reference, I am glad that Duo teach us with our favorite quotes <3
