Should this sentence also translate as "I am also thirsty"?


You're correct. It's actually a better translation in my opinions.


I would think so, as "I too am thirsty" comes up as a correct answer (and to my ear, that sounds less natural than "I am also...")


Nope. There should be a verb "drink" in this sentence.


That's exactly how I was forced to translate it in my task just now.


"I want to drink also" should be correct as well!


I want to drink also it wrong :( that's how I would say it in english


"I am thirsty." would translate to "Я спрагнений." (for masculine gender) & "Я спрагнена." for the feminine gender. You can also be general by saying "I have thirst." "Я маю спрагу." but it's not frequently used.


'I want to drink also' wrong, 'i also want to drink' is right?? Make it make sense


why not "I'm also thirsty"?


I'm reporting it. Why Duo suggests "I also am thirsty" while most natural word order woud seem "I am also"? And "be thirsty/hungry" are two phrases that we learn at school as classic translations instead of "want to drink/eat". Though "I'm thirsty, too" might be better still (meaning somebody is thirsty and I am, too)


Should this sentence be intepreted as something like '- I'm really thirsty. - I also want to drink.' or 'I want to to eat and I also want to drink.'? Or can it mean both?

(I think english sentence may mean both, but I'm not a native speaker so it might be a stupid question...)


The English sentence could mean both, depending on the conversational context, and on the stress - "I ALSO want to drink" (in addition to someone else wanting to drink), "I also want to DRINK/I ALSO want to DRINK" (in addition to doing some other activity)


Ukrainian: Теж Russian: Тоже Polish: Też Ukrainian is what you'd get if you threw Russian and Polish into a blender and turned it up to grind up some of the harsher sounds.


That's true for any Slavic language, for example, Russian is a mix of Bulgarian and Ukrainian, Slovak is a mix of polish and Czech and so on :)


I said "wanna" instead of "want to" and it said I'm wrong??
