Is it just me that i thought I heard "goed"? i mean, now that i know it is "groot", it sounds like it could be both goed and groot.
I heard goed too!
It sounded like "troot" to me!
Why is "The building is tall." considered wrong?
I'm not a native English speaker, but that sounded intuitive to me.
Me, too. I wouldn't say the building is big. A big house, yes, but not a big building.
Just curious; would "Het gebouw staat groot" also be acceptable?
No. I can't explain why though. I know why you would think that, but in this sense, it would be translated as "the building stands large".
