Flattery gets you everywhere.

Why isn't the partitive used here?


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

Because an owl is one entire thing, i.e. not partial.

Why not A green owl if Finnish doesn’t have a or the?

If "A green owl is pretty" was not accepted, report it.

Could one say "Tämä lause on niin söpö"? Duo could rebrand as a parrot with that kind of "who's a pretty bird, then?" sentence! Seriously, though, their logo evolution is interesting to observe. There's a webpage that collects weird Duolingo sentences and it's on there, if anyone's interested.
