Adding to my ice breaker phrases.

I believe the option "Do you have your own castle" should also be allowed

Of course, doesn't everyone?

Once again, own castle is right too

"Do you own a castle" should be correct too, because you're also asking the same question as "Do you have a castle of your own", it's just in a short form.

"Do you own a castle?" would be "Omistatko (sinä) linnan?" which is an entirely different question.

@jusdray: I don't agree as in the first sentence it can be "castle" as opposed to "palace," which is not in the second sentence. (Sept 2020)

The second sentence emphasizes whose castle it is.

An Englishman's home is his castle.

Oh, I actually have one, it's a miniature though


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Barb1468

Why not "You have your own castle?"... Depending on the context, you could work with pronunciation, right?

Wouldn't that be "Sinulla on oma linna?" then? Does it work like that in finnish?
