It depends how big the cat is, as I can illustrate, no pun intended. This is my concept of Mowgli and Shir-khan, as written in the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling long ago. I hope you enjoy.
Fortunately in this case Mowgli ties fire to the tiger's tail, it runs away (tigeren løber væk og alle er glade efter det, untagen tigeren.)
I've made a few illustrations to appreciate my thanks to the duolingo community for creating courses like this, and also because people sometimes go into culture shock when they read about turtles reading newspapers etc. so that they will have something to look forward to hopefully in the discussions.
Since I've gotten some positive response, not negative I've reposted it in Dansk with a couple small tweaks and will update it if I make any improvements.
Wow! This was more like a confidence test (hear and type exercise it was) for me as I couldn't really be sure if it was "drenge" or some food that I'd forgotten. Glad to know I'm confident enough. ;)
LOL løve spiser katten og katten spiser du, du spiser brød og brød spiser løve. conclusion this isn't real. LOL
Can anybody explain why the 'ikke' in this sentence directly follows the verb and before the object, and then in another Duolingo sentence 'jeg finder hende ikke' the 'ikke' is at the end- after the object, not directly after the verb. Is there a specific rule here, or are they both acceptable word orders? thanks
The word 'hende' in your sentence is unstressed and therefore a so called 'light' object. This means that it is always placed before 'ikke'.
I think it really varies on the sentence. You kind of need a feeling of what sounds more right and better, or that's how I do it at least. But I don't know if there's a rule
I dont remember the rule, but it has something to do with the big sentence and the small sentence.
honestly, this is good. if duolingo gave logical, un-psycho sentences, i'd be bored
My question a few questions ago said that cats DO eat boys... Come on Doulingo which one is it? Make up your mind
If the cat is big enough and the boys are tasty, they do. Put a bit of ketchup on and BAM!
