why The daughter drinks water. can't be correct?
Is it because Kiz needs specific context (like a possessive before the noun) to mean daughter?
Yes, you are right: "kız" may mean "daughter" only when it is used with a possessive construction. A bit like "ragazza" in Italian: without any possesive, it means "girl" whereas when you say "mia ragazza" it means "my girlfriend".
So this "rule" is only for subjects of a sentence (and singular)?
I'm trying to guess the rule alone but didn't achieve to do it for the moment.
It is true for both plural and singular. However, objects are a different story...
Yes, things work differently for the object of a sentence (as you'll see in the accusative skill). BTW, I think daughter should be accepted for kız under any circumstances (a bit like in French fille can be both girl and daughter), so it's probably just a variation they haven't added yet.
N.B.: In FR, when there is no explicit context, translating it by daughter is not the most natural at all (I don't think I would ever understand it like that in a conversation).
That's why I formulate my question like that. ;)
I am Turkish and I was taking this course to see if this is valid. and you can actually say she drinks water if you translate Kız su içer
Yep, tense is on the verb and it always comes at the end of the sentence :)
This ia highly confusing by Duo. here they require you to write "The" everywhere, despite the fact that the turkish sentence does not have the. Later on they will intrdute the ending that will clarify where "the" is used in Turkish, but by that point you will think this is the correct way. Absolutely idiotic logic and very confusing.
It's difficult for me when drinks and when drink, please help me içer means drinks iç means drink?
Hi Is it wrong to answer Girl drinks water? I mean is "The" always necessary with Kiz?
It Is not about the specific word but the noun requires an article in general.
Why its (a girl ) not ( the girl)? I thought it should be (bir kız su içer) to be translated (a girl drinks water)
